Most of you (over 1000 of you) have read my post on the State of our ILS. Well I recently found out that at least one of those people was from Innovative!
2 people from my library were able to attend the recentin Colorado. While at a big event one of them was approached by an innovative staff member. He mentioned that someone had sent him a blog post to read – and he was surprised to find out that it was written by someone who worked at Jenkins – apparently he wasn’t pleasantly surprised though.
What’s my response to that? GOOD! You shouldn’t be happy – in fact I hope that your unhappiness gets some action out of you.
John Blyberg wrote a post yesterday (somewhat unrelated) where he says:
Many of you who follow what I write here know that’s a contentious issue for me, but I’ll keep my hackles down for now and simply remind everyone that this is another reason to demand a few basic rights from our vendors.
I agree and I feel his pain! Most people here know that they don’t want to get me started on the subject of our catalog – I just go on and on and on – and I’m going to keep going on and on and on until someone out there does something about it. So if anyone from Innovative is reading this – pay attention to what your users are saying – and DO SOMETHING!
