Abstract

In 2013, University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Libraries embarked on a strategy to determine its readiness for a migration from its existing Integrated Library System (ILS) to a new cloud-based Library Services Platform (LSP). This article discusses a process for determining whether the time is right for an organization to move to a cloud-based LSP, and it will focus on the process undertaken at UNLV Libraries, describing the outcomes and lessons learned.
