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
As you read this month’s issue of the FALSC Update, I hope that all is well with you, with your family and friends, and with all of your colleagues. 2020 has been quite a year so far! For everyone at FALSC, October is the seventh month of our remote work operations. I simply cannot overstate how appreciative I am of everyone at FALSC and FLVC for their dedication and fortitude. By now, I recognize that it is repetitive of me to make the following statement, but nonetheless, I must again state that all FALSC services, projects, and resources have continued without any interruption during this tumultuous year.
In previous newsletters, I have mentioned the process undertaken by the State University System Board of Governors to select a new host institution for the essential services provided by FALSC and FLVC. I’m extraordinarily pleased to announce that the Northwest Regional Data Center (NWRDC) at Florida State University (FSU) has been selected as the new host institution.

FALSC BUSINESS OPERATIONS UPDATE
At FALSC our continued goal is to provide superior customer service and ensure the institutions we work with feel confident and supported in any environment. This goal rings especially true as we respond to uncertainty around COVID-19. In light of the current environment, FALSC business operations will be conducted remotely until further notice. Although most FALSC staff will be working remotely during this period, regular email communication will be monitored. Please feel free to reach out to any staff members as needed. We want to assure you that FALSC continues active business operations and we are committed to helping to support your needs.
