Fun With ILS Vendors

There has been a lot of fun with the ILS (Integrated Library Systems, just for you Mr. R) vendors recently. First there was Roy Tennant’s post, then Blyberg’s (which makes use of one of my very favorite nonwords), then Steven noticed that III has a Flickr account, and Nicole weighed in on that subject (along with some words from Michael Stephens).

I tried to leave a comment on Nicole’s blog, but I always get this weird error message, so I decided to write my comment here:

I work in an Innovative library and I have something to say to you Innovative. Lip service is not the same as service! Are you listening? Do you care?

–Jane, no more lip service

p.s. Please excuse the obvious overuse of parenthesis as sentence devices. (Though technically, I am not at all sorry.)
