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
The days are getting shorter, darkness falls earlier, and even in Florida, there is a chill in the air. As a native of the mountains of Appalachia, I have a special fondness for fall, when the colors of the leaves change, and the afternoon sunset attains a golden hue seen only at that time of year. In the lifecycle of the academic year, late November is the time when students recognize that the semester is a marathon rather than a sprint, and faculty begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel as the end of class approaches.
The work of FLVC Library Services never stops, as you’ll see throughout this issue of the Update. We continue to refine various aspects of the new Integrated Library System, as well as to incorporate new features provided via updates to the system; we’re nearing the end of the annual process for licensing electronic resources for all of our member libraries; and plenty of changes are happening in the area of digital services. In all of our work, our overarching goal is to provide the best possible information resources and services to all of our member libraries.
Happy fall to everyone!
