Bruges Public Library catalogue


Prompted by a recent entry, I got a note from Koen Calis, Librarian Bruges Public Library, about their catalogue, Cabrio. Here is quite a full presentation which covers a range of interesting feature:

I was interested in their adaptation of my colleague Robin Murray’s synthesise/specialise/mobilise framework to frame the discussion. In his note, Koen remarked that “Bruges Public library considers the horizontal discovery of local resources (heritage collections, community information, courses and events, local advisory data…) to be a very important starting point for redeveloping our library into a local knowledge hub and to enhance participation of the local community”.

Library leaders should be drawn from across the organization. Any idea that technology leaders are overly specialised or too distant from general library work is outmoded and counter-productive.
