She will also discuss how the mobile redesign increased access to research apps and how users have responded to the changes.

OCLC Affecting Effectiveness: New Technologies to Maximize Library Impact Exhibitor session, Vendor demonstration/activity Dallas Convention Center
Description :

Facebook allows you to plug user-created or commercial apps into your online experience with a single, simple click. Amazon uses analytics to make recommendations about what you might enjoy reading. So why not use some of the same technologies to increase library effectiveness? In this session, Kathryn Harnish, OCLC’s product manager for the platform, describes several approaches that OCLC is taking to enable libraries—and their partners—to customize workflows, enhance the user experience and increase overall effectiveness.
