Library Data Platform
The Library Data Platform (LDP) is a partnership between the library community and software engineers to promote data integration and analytics capabilities in libraries.  The LDP project is developing a new open platform that brings modern data management technologies to libraries.  LDP partners with both FOLIO and ReShare, where a growing community is actively developing LDP-based reporting features.  The platform is community-owned and open-source, and offers tools that libraries can leverage to support analyzing and visualizing their data, and integrating it with library data from other sources.  LDP also prepares libraries for opportunities in the area of data and analytics, by providing scalable infrastructure they will need to support data interoperability and data science, and by building on the foundation of an open platform.  This talk will give an overview of LDP, discuss how the FOLIO and ReShare communities are engaging with it, and invite collaboration.

ReShare: The Future of Library Resource Sharing
ReShare is a community-owned, modular resource sharing platform designed to offer seamless access to shared library collections and facilitate efficient, intuitive workflows for library staff. ReShare recently released version 1.2 of its Returnables software, focused on sharing of physical items between members of a consortium, and two early implementers will go live this summer: ConnectNY (CNY) and PALCI.

This presentation will introduce the ReShare project, community, governance structure, and business model. It will feature a demonstration of the Returnables 1.2 software and a preview of the project’s roadmap for the next year. Attendees will learn about the capabilities of the ReShare software and how they can get more involved with the project.
