Library Services Platforms (LSP) and its impact on the Future of Automated Systems
The purpose of this research is to discuss the functional and technological characteristics of the new generation of office services platforms, and the features required in the next generation systems, with a follow-up analysis of a number of service platforms and comparison between them, and finally a discussion of the future of library systems in light of this technology. The research relied on the use of the descriptive analytical method to address the subject of the research and achieve its objectives.
The research concluded several results, the most important of which are: the necessity of involving libraries in the process of building and developing new platforms and identifying some of the required standards that must find their way in future versions of this product related to some activities such as, demand-based acquisition, ERM, APT, and defining standards that cover Application programming interfaces.
The research recommended several recommendations, the most important of which are: the need for libraries to quickly adopt library services platforms to meet the challenges imposed by the impact of digital transformation, identify the actual and evolving needs of beneficiaries, and make optimal use of these new platforms, which can provide a lot of assistance in improving the quality of those services, and avoiding saving information.
