The Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative website provides information, training, tools, and other resources for library staff at the colleges and universities served by the Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC).
Visitors are invited to learn more about the Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative (FALSC) 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:
And just like that, the fall semester is upon us! As much as I enjoy the work that I do at FALSC, I confess that I deeply miss the energy and excitement that permeates the college or university campus at the beginning of a new semester. It's always a delight to observe the enthusiasm and eagerness of students who are on campus for the first time, and it's a great opportunity to let them know that the library is simply the best place to be.

NEW ILS UPDATE
FALSC would like to thank everyone who participated in the ITN process for a new Integrated Library System. We appreciate all the hard work of both the Evaluation Team and all the Reviewers across the state!
After the Evaluation Team meeting on May 7th, a recommendation was made for FALSC to begin negotiations with one or more of the vendors. This has been reported to the UWF President, VP for Research and Strategic Information, FLVC CEO and the FALSC Executive Director.
The work of the Evaluation Team is now complete and the work of the Negotiation Team will begin. The formation of the Negotiation Team will include the FALSC Executive Director and staff, FLVC CEO and Contract Manager, UWF Procurement, and a representative from the SUS and FCS. Negotiations will begin over the summer.
For more details and the latest information on the ILS selection, please refer to FALSC’s special Libguide page about the project.
