About the presenter:
I have been working with system integration and user experience for more than ten years – the last six in the library world. Focus is on integration of systems enabling a smooth and silo free experience for the user. Co-awarded “The Azriel Morag Award for Innovation” with Kasper Løvschall by Ex Libris and IEeLU 2015 on the basis of some of the work included in this suggestion for presentation.
People working with integration and development of discovery systems etc.
Buying out-of-the-box discovery systems for libraries holds great benefits, but may also introduce a struggle to adapt the system to various local demands for functionality. This can vary from a need to change certain minor things that are not configurable, to adding complex functionality for the individual user without having to re-write the entire user interface yourself.
This workshop will start by introduction to generic patterns in customization. This introduction is based on the speakers six years of experience with modifying a user interface provided by a vendor, discovering pros and cons to various kinds of solutions. Together with the experience from you – the audience – this will form the basis for working with various scenarios for making changes to the UI. These will be focused on three main areas; modifying the user interface itself, enrichment of the individual record and enhancing the search experience.
