Other InformationThe purpose of this RFI is to gain familiarity with the Library Management System or Platform and related library services including, but not limited to: journal article linking, discovery service, electronic resource management, electronic reserves, and interlibrary loan. We are looking for a system which provides more than the traditional ILS functionality and includes or allows for seamless integration with web-discovery platforms, electronic resource management tools, statistic gathering tools and cloud computing technologies. We will gather information in a formal, structured and comparable way. The results of the RFI process may help in the decision making process by allowing us to develop a well-conceived solicitation document (RFP, RFQ) and to clarify competitive requirements. We expect to use the results of this RFI to decide if the Keystone Library Network (Network) will move to a system or systems hosted by a supplier or if the Network will maintain the current server hub using either proprietary software or open source software. Additionally, we will use the results of this RFI to determine if a single database of shared bibliographic records offers an improved work flow and work product versus the current set-up of individual databases.
