Libraries in the US collectively invest almost half a billion dollars annually in the platforms that manage and provide access to their collections and services.

Breeding will give a brief introduction and will then lead a lively discussion to probe at the technology and business trends currently in play, including industry consolidation, differing approaches to opening software to library programmers, and the shift toward cloud-based technologies. The panel is scheduled to include: Kim Massana, Chief Executive Officer Innovative Interfaces; Matti Shem-Tov, President and Chief Executive Officer Ex Libris; Bill Davidson, President and Chief Executive Officer SirsiDynix; Kurt Sanford, Chief Executive Officer ProQuest; Skip Prichard, President and Chief Executive Officer OCLC; Annette Harwood Murphy, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President The Library Corporation.
