A People’s Network, the vision of a single digital presence for TLC – the libraries consortium, a digital front door for The Libraries Consortium is now realised with the new LSP. We are super excited to hear Kelly Saini Badwal of The Libraries Consortium (TLC) formerly The London Libraries Consortium present on this today at Internet Librarian with Solus Directors John Richardson and Andrew Daye joining the panel! Kelly will talk about the technology and people underpinning the Library Consortium’s new game-changing LSP.

A single digital presence for TLC – the libraries consortium! Now a reality for TLC members.

Technology ­and finance­ often ­dominate the digital agenda. In a world where local authorities are struggling to provide basic services, aligning work forces with new technology is likely to ­be ­difficult. ­It’s­ a­ problem ­that­ a­ consortium can often overcome as when you take into account all the authorities it is a multi-million-pound contract, giving the TLC strength in numbers in terms of procurement. The consortium wanted a single digital presence for the members and they wanted it tailored to their specifications.

When the Libraries Consortium went through the procurement process they really pushed the market in a way that the sector has never really done in the UK. This was because they were not just thinking about purchasing a Library Management System- LMS, but were looking at the next generation of technology and a platform and having far better services and systems for our customers to access – a digital front door, a single digital presence for the Libraries Consortium .

They all agreed it was time for a better and personalized patron centric service? If big tech can do it, why can’t libraries, and at the same time, cement a link between digital and physical services? Well they can and they have! 2 years on, with the help of Solus they have turned the vision and the passion of member libraries into a People’s Network a single digital presence that is now a reality for TLC members.
