Library Services Platform Project

LSP 450x300

On behalf of the 116 California community college libraries, the California Community Colleges (CCC) Chancellor’s Office and the CCC Technology Center have initiated a state-funded project to obtain and implement a single cloud-based library services platform (LSP) to replace the various ILS systems now in use in any of the libraries that choose to participate.

The Chancellor’s Office and the Technology Center have partnered with the Council of Chief Librarians, California Community Colleges (CCL), to form project governance, develop a project workplan, select representative pilot colleges and complete the procurement process.

In a year-long systemwide effort that involved many system stakeholders, an RFP was developed, vendor proposals and demonstrations were rated and scored, and a vendor (Ex Libris) was selected for the project.

After a year-long implementation and training effort, 110 colleges went live on the Ex Libris product suite of Alma and Primo in January 2020.

Consideration of ongoing operation of the project and exploration of ways to increase collaboration in areas such as resource sharing, regional collaboration with advanced features, and collection development is also underway.
