Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to: A. Scope of Work: The Libraries of the Alamo Colleges are seeking proposals for a next generationlibrary management system (LMS) that integrates with a Discovery Service (DS) allowing ourstudents, faculty, and staff to easily and quickly obtain the information they need. With this nextgeneration system, appropriate open educational resources can easily be added to the collections ofresults along with the libraries owned and licensed resources. The Alamo Colleges consist of fiveseparately accredited two-year colleges within a district system primarily located in San Antonio,Texas. The five colleges are St. Philips College, San Antonio College, Palo Alto College, NorthwestVista College and Northeast Lakeview College. Together the colleges enroll over 60,000 students.There are approximately 545,000 bibliographic records and 805,000 item records in our currentsystem. The Libraries have shared an integrated library system (ILS) since 1994. In 2010, thelibraries migrated the ILS to a hosted solution as budget cuts did not allow for replacement of thelead systems librarian. Although we share a system and a public access catalog (PAC), our collegesare separately accredited and individually funded with the libraries operating similarly to aconsortium. Our current system allows us to maintain segregated (or scoped) financial, circulationand course reserve operations. Each library has a system administrator that deals with the staffauthorizations and configuration of these separately maintained operations. This is one of theessential requirements for a new system. Our current system, Innovative Interfaces Millennium, willeventually cease to be developed as the company concentrates on the enhancement of its cloudbasednext generation library system.
