Other InformationThe SAPL, in support of its overall mission, strives to ensure seamless access to excellent library service by partnering with contractors for the acquisition of new technologies. In order to achieve the mission, the San Antonio Public Library is launching a two phase project. Phase I will entail the partnership with a dynamic, strategic contractor who will provide and implement a cutting edge Integrated Library System (ILS). A new ILS will support library staff and its membership in their goals with efficient workflows, adherence to both library industry and technology standards and best practices, provide staff access to statistical data on both system use and inventory, provide self-service opportunities for patrons, provide access controls to protect patron privacy and be scalable and adaptable for future growth and needs. Phase II will advance the technology expansion that aligns with the priorities identified in the Library’s IT Roadmap and will include procuring and implementing a Discovery Layer, Mobile Application and Online Registration/Renewal System which will foster the development of flexible environments and various formats that can accommodate individual differences and preferences and completely overcome barriers to quality service. Phase II will be conducted as a collaborative effort involving the City of San Antonio and the previously selected ILS contractor who will assure that other third party contractors can be integrated into the broader ILS landscape.
