Results of Marshall Breeding's International Survey of Library Automation

Marshall Breeding's third annual International Survey of Library Automation was posted to the Library Technology Guides website on January 22nd. This annual survey collects data on how libraries rate their current integrated library system, the company involved, and the quality of customer support. The survey also aims to gather data regarding attitudes regarding interest levels in open source ILS products.

One of the most interesting, to me, top trends that Breeding identifies is that "except for the libraries already using an open source ILS, the survey reflected low levels of interest, even when the company rates their satisfaction with their current proprietary ILS and its company as poor."
