Seton Hall University Libraries Receives Technology award

I am pleased to announce that the Rethinking Resource Sharing (RSS) Innovation Award Committee has recognized Seton Hall University Libraries “for their process of innovating across all library services” with an Honorable Mention in this year’s award cycle.  The notification e-mail stated that:

“The pool of nominations for the Innovation Award is always competitive and this year was no exception.  We are pleased to inform you that we have awarded you an Honorable Mention…..  We are impressed with the work you have done and would like to acknowledge and celebrate your efforts within the Resource Sharing community.  … Congratulations to you and your team and thank you very sincerely for your efforts to improve resource sharing overall.” 

Seton Hall’s application was for “the entire process that led us to numerous, small-scale, problem-solving innovations of importance to libraries our size from a challenging baseline” over the course of several years.  The letter of support from OCLC noted that “SHU was critical in ensuring that their new cloud-based management service would work well with the legacy client-server software that allowed for material fulfillment for their users”,  and EBSCO’s letter of support noted that SHU was “focused on building a library system which leveraged technology, a good user experience, and a long range plan. That progressive Seton Hall vision led EBSCO and OCLC by improving their partnership surrounding API interoperability” – among other large and small innovations over the years.

The RSS Innovation award (RRS Manifesto) is sponsored by Atlas Systems, and this year’s winners were the Information Delivery Services (IDS) Project, based primarily in the State University of New York system, and the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Libraries for developing an automated alternative to paper-based archival resource sharing.  A fellow Honorable mention went to the University of Ottawa Libraries.
