The Florida Virtual Campus Library Services website provides information, training, tools, and other resources for library staff at the 28 state colleges and 12 public universities in Florida.
Visitors are invited to learn more about the Library Services unit of the Florida Virtual Campus and the 150+ libraries at our state's 40 public institutions of higher education. A clickable map locates the colleges and universities that we serve and provides links to each institution's library website.
update from the executive director
As I’m writing this section of the update, the spring semester is coming to an end. We’ve all had a busy semester, and I’m sure we’re all looking forward to a chance to regroup as we launch into activities for the summer.
The Florida Library Association Annual Conference is one of the main events of this time of year for libraries in Florida. FLVC staff attended the conference and provided an update session which I hope many readers of this update were able to attend. Our presentation was a good opportunity to introduce FLVC resources and services to colleagues who may be new to Florida, while also providing updates on new activities to long time colleagues.
Collaboration between our member libraries and FLVC staff is essential to the success of FLVC’s activities. One of the ways that colleagues around the state can participate in achieving this success is by joining one of the Standing Committees of the FLVC Members Council on Library Services MCLS). These Standing Committees work cooperatively with the MCLS and with FLVC to provide advice and input on how best to deploy FLVC’s resources, services, and expertise. We need your help! Please consider joining the Standing Committees. There is a complete list of all of the Standing Committees available on the FLVC website at https://libraries.flvc.org/standing-committees.
To get more information about the specific mission and goals of each Standing Committee, visit any of the Committee LibGuides at https://flvc.libguides.com/Committees.
In other FLVC news, I am delighted to announce that Tammy Elliott has returned to FLVC Library Services in the role of Senior Administrative and Events Coordinator. Many readers of this Update will recognize Tammy from her many years of service with FLVC and with its predecessor organization, the College Center for Library Automation (CCLA). Tammy joined the staff of CCLA in 1993 and worked in a variety of roles of increasing responsibility with CCLA/FALSC/FLVC from 1993 to 2019. We are truly fortunate to have Tammy on the FLVC team!
