The Galecia Group, headed up by Lori Bowen Ayre, has established an excellent reputation for providing high quality consulting in technologies that are becoming necessities for the 21st century library: self-service technologies, automated materials handling, RFID, and open source software.
We partner with libraries to evaluate materials handling workflow from acquisitions to interlibrary delivery. We take libraries through a longer term Lean process improvement project or just recommend simple workflow and work space modifications. We seek to combine the best combination of self-service technologies, materials handling solutions and/or RFID to address the library's primary pain points and budget. We document long-term savings and benefits (for staff and patrons alike) from these smart investments.
We help libraries make good software choices for their ILS, content management system, and resource-sharing systems by helping define requirements and guide libraries through the procurement process. We also have begun providing development and support for Drupal for libraries that need that support.
