Other InformationThe purpose of this RFP is to provide interested parties with information to enable them to prepare and submit a proposal for a Library Services Platform (LSP) for the University of Wisconsin System Libraries. The University of Wisconsin is seeking a solution that will bring the many University of Wisconsin System libraries under a single library services platform. In seeking to bring our many libraries under a single library services platform, we hope to reduce barriers to collaboration in order to achieve economies of scale and to benefit from the deep expertise a large collective of libraries can afford to support. We view working under one system as implying a shared pool of bibliographic and patron records; the possibility of centralizing or collaborating on workflows in acquisitions, cataloging, and other tech services; improved processes for resource sharing across system campuses; opportunities for collaborative collection development; and centralized system support. In these respects, we will behave as one library system with many locations.
