BIC’s EDI for Libraries Training Course 

This course is kindly sponsored by:

 

10 places on this course are kindly donated by:

Purpose of the Course
Libraries rely on Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) to enable efficient electronic communication, such as exchanging quotes, orders and invoices with stock suppliers. Although this is a mature technology, it is important for libraries of all kinds to be able to understand and manage their EDI systems efficiently. This training course is designed to help librarians to manage EDI, to use industry standards, to solve EDI issues and to gain the benefits of their EDI investment.

Benefits of Attending 
This course will:

  • Provide delegates with the knowledge and confidence to understand and manage their library’s EDI systems and the various methods of exchanging business messages, such as quotes orders and invoices, with their suppliers.
  • Include an overview of EDI, the EDI messages and standards and how to use them, and how to solve issues and obtain help.
  • Be an opportunity for librarians to dive behind the scenes and understand how their library systems and their supplier’s systems communicate. They will develop the confidence to problem-solve with systems suppliers and stock suppliers when EDI issues arise.
  • Cover EDI as used by both public and academic libraries.

Course Level
This course is aimed at those who are completely new to EDI or who have had some involvement but have never felt completely at ease with EDI systems and standards. Attendees do not need technical know-how but should understand the basics of key library processes, especially acquisitions. Library staff, who deal with 3rd parties providing day-to-day EDI services, would also benefit from attending this course.

Course Outline
This workshop-style course consists of information slides with informal discussion combined with exercises exploring practical areas such as the make-up of EDI messages, mapping to the EDI standards, and how to cope with specific requirements. The topics covered will include:

  • What is EDI for Libraries?
  • How does it work?
  • Standards and technologies: Tradacoms, EDIFACT and APIs
  • Setting up EDI with the Library Management System and Library Stock Suppliers
  • Importance of EDI standards for Libraries
  • Exploring the benefits of EDI
  • How to solve Library EDI issues
  • How to obtain help and guidance

Course Preparation
Ahead of the course, BIC will send a brief survey to course delegates covering EDI issues they may have encountered. This is to ensure that the course is as relevant and useful as possible.

“This was a well-rounded and very informative course, leaving me feeling inspired and more confident in the job search process. Thank you.”

Whether you are established in your publishing career or just starting out, this course is for you. You will learn all there is to know about how to find a job in book publishing. Even if you think you already ‘know it all’ you are likely to come away from the course having learnt something new.

We incorporate all aspects of job searching – from CVs, covering letters, interviews (including competency based interviews), networking, social media, Recruitment Consultants, branding, where to find jobs – and add in lots of valuable inside information that is essential in today’s ever-changing job climate.

“An incredibly helpful day, full of useful information.”

The industry is changing at a rapid rate and so is the way that employers recruit staff. Bookcareers are right at the front of the queue when learning about these changes, as we are regularly in touch with employers and recruiters across the industry. During this one day course we will share with you the tools that you need to help you find your own job and ways forward, so that you have the knowledge to go and get the job that you really want.

“Very helpful seminar, having everything you need to know in one day is the best way to approach it”

This is a LIVE day – everything is tailored for those in the room. It is interactive; you have input and are able to ask questions and receive feedback at all times. Out of the whole day, there is only one 30 minute Powerpoint presentation – all other content is delivered with you and your unique situation in mind.

ALPSP UKSG Joint Event: Shifting Power Centres in Scholarly Communications: Implications and future roles for libraries and publishers

Overview

The pace of change in our sector has accelerated – and that change has also become more wide-reaching. We are moving beyond the “fall out” from the digital revolution – and its implications for user behaviors, customer expectations, product formats and business models – into a much bigger shift, where established roles and accepted models are being questioned. Boundaries are blurring, with funders and universities taking greater ownership of how research is communicated, and publishers and libraries exploring new areas in which they can provide services and support. Where does all of this change leave researchers – are they already realising new benefits, or are they suffering from having one foot in the old world and one in the new? What will happen next, and how should scholarly publishers and librarians prepare?

This year’s One-Day Conference/Seminar is a partnership between UKSG and ALPSP, two organizations uniquely placed to understand and address the scholarly communications’ community’s needs and concerns in this rapidly evolving ecosystem. The event promises strategic insight, practical takeaways and robust discussion among research funders, academics, librarians and publishers.

Confirmed speakers already include:

  • Chair: Andrew Barker, Liverpool John Moores University
  • Beth Montague-Hellen, Senior Research Librarian at the University of Nottingham, on future roles for libraries
  • Regina Everitt, Director of Library and Learning Services at the University of East London, on future roles for libraries
  • Dr. Max Haring, Project Manager – University Journals at University of Amsterdam, on universities collaborating to create their own publishing platform
  • Dr. Jocelyn LeblancAssociation of Medical Research Charities on the Funder perspective on owning OA platforms
  • Ian MulvanySage Publishing, on how publishers are adapting to the shifting scholarly impact landscape
  • Cathal McCauley, Maynooth University on the European perspective
  • Dr. Alicia Wise, Director, Information Power, on the Society Publishers Accelerating Open access and Plan S (SPA-OPS) project
  • Susie Winter, Springer Nature on Transformative journals – a publisher perspective
