Hello Everyone,

Summer is right around the corner, and another academic year is behind us. Here are just a few highlights of FLVC’s accomplishments since last summer:

Integrated Library Systems (ILS)

  • Coordinated with the Analytics Working Group to create, test, and implement 57 library statistical reports, spanning all functional areas of Alma & Primo VE.
  • Worked with library consortia in New York, South Carolina, and Maryland to implement a resource sharing pilot project. This voluntary, opt-in program enables libraries in those external consortia to share resources with libraries at Florida’s 40 public institutions. To date, UCF, FGCU, and NCF have opted-in for this new service.
  • Hosted multiple online, instructional, interactive webinars with institutional library staff on key ILS enhancements, local and national statistical reporting, and other library related topics.
