Other InformationThis system will extend or replace the Consortium's current SirsiDynix Horizon 7.5.1 ILS and Horizon Information Portal 3.21.2 (HIP) OPAC which the Consortium jointly owns and manages. The system will either replace or integrate with the BiblioCommons BiblioCore discovery layer, currently used by both members of the Consortium. The system will also integrate closely with third-party subscription databases such as, but not limited to, OverDrive for eBooks and eAudiobooks (via the Washington Anytime Library), Zinio for eMagazines, Hoopla for streaming and downloadable media, and Boopsie’s mobile app. The Consortium seeks an ILS that supports the continued growth of the system, provides 24/7/365 availability to our patrons and staff, supports currently implemented payment systems, integrates with our current and future third-party products (see section 11), allows for differentiation in operations between the members of the Consortium, and provides an enterprise-level SQL-compliant database.
