IMPLEMENTING THE NISO CIRCULATION INTERCHANGE PROTOCOL (NCIP):  A 
Discussion between Librarians and Software Developers

WHEN:           Monday, January 21st. 2-4pm
WHERE:  Morial Convention Center Room 281

Please join NCIP Committee members and early implementers to hear  how the 
protocol will translate into  "real world" implementation.  At this meeting 
we will discuss the three key application areas:

-       Direct Consortial Borrowing (how a consortium of libraries with 
agreed upon borrowing policies will be able to implement the protocol to 
allow patrons to borrow on site at any library  or make remote requests 
through their OPAC for delivery and pickup.)

-       Circulation to Interlibrary Loan Interaction ( the impact on 
service design when Circulation and Interlibrary Loan systems can 
communicate to share information about shipping, notification, etc.)

-        Self Service Circulation (how the NCIP standard can be used to 
develop applications that allow users to check out or check in items, 
possibly also pay fines, without the assistance of staff)

The purpose of the meeting is to give librarians  and developers the 
opportunity to understand the potential of the protocol and to suggest ways 
to begin dialog between  vendors and librarians about 
needed  functionality, and thus to inform development schedules.  Speakers 
will be early implementers of the protocol who can share their insights 
into its potential for new ways of developing services.
