|Other Information||The School Library Services (SLS), Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) goal is to ensure that all students and staff in the HIDOE are effective users of ideas and information, competent and enthusiastic readers, independent learners, and positive contributors to their school and community.
To support this goal, SLS intends to select a centralized state-of-the-art, integrated library management system (ILS) to meet library operation, instruction, and resource discovery and dissemination needs. The purpose of a centralized ILS is to facilitate and encourage access to and use of central and local library resources by students and teachers in support of HIDOE learning goals and targets. The selected ILS will enhance educational opportunities, improve over-all school library and educational processes, reduce costs, provide disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities, employ up-to-date and advanced technologies, and allow for future growth.
HIDOE consists of 255 public schools, 33 public charter schools and various support facilities.
HIDOE has approximately 180,000 students and 15,000 employees. All HIDOE campuses and administrative sites are networked. The network operates on firewall and security systems protect this network. The current centralized library management system, Destiny, is run from a server housed at a state office within the HIDOE network.
The ILS will need to interface with our Electronic Student Information System (eSIS) and
Microsoft Active Directory (AD) for staff accounts. This proposal is seeking hosted and self-hosted solutions that include the software, maintenance, support, data conversion, training, and implementation costs.|
