Other InformationIt is the hope of the ATU library system to contract for a unified set of services which will improve and simplify staff processes. Information in higher education has increasingly shifted to more digital and electronic formats, more complex purchasing and licensing practices, and more varied delivery and access methods. To continue to meet the high expectations of a growing population of users, the ATU library system requires a new, next-generation system with a wider range of capabilities than traditional library software systems. The Library has concluded that a modern, hosted system will result in greater cost efficiency, improved services, more accurate processing, improved maintenance of library inventory, and new opportunities to expand library services and resources. Arkansas Tech University expects to contract with one vendor for a Library Management System (LMS) and may contract with the same vendor or separate vendor(s) for a Library Discovery Service (LDS). Proposers may submit proposals that respond to just the Library Management System part of the RFP or both an LMS and LDS software as bundled together. The University will only accept proposals for a LDS from vendors who also submit a proposal for an LMS.
