This issue of Information Standards Quarterly on the Future of Library Systems spotlights the topic of the new generation of products that I call Library Services Platforms. The earlier term integrated library systems (ILS) is associated with the functionality and concepts associated with managing print collections and the metadata about them. These new products and projects cast a wider net, consistent with the expansion of library collections to include a complex assemblage of electronic and digital materials in addition to their physical inventories.
