                        DISCUSSION TOPICS

I. "The Great Migration":  Choosing Our Next System
        As automated systems become increasingly sophisticated
   and flexible, many libraries have migrated to new systems
   or are planning to do so.  How do we go about choosing and
   implementing a new system?  Who participates in the process?
   How do we decide which features we want and which system best
   meets our needs?  What do we need to consider as we go through
   the planning process?
