University of California Libraries Launch Project to Create Systemwide Integrated Library System

The University of California (UC) Libraries continually strive for an integrated, user-centric collection that supports and enhances the mission of the UC, deriving its strength from the diverse nature of the individual campus library collections. Currently, each campus independently licenses an Integrated Library System (ILS) to manage the acquisition, use and sharing of print and electronic library resources; a patchwork of services and connective systems ensures the campus collections are accessible systemwide to all UC students, faculty and staff.

With the goal of sustaining and enhancing service for all members of the UC community, the UC libraries—at the direction of the Council of University Librarians (CoUL)—has launched a project to explore a Systemwide ILS (SILS) platform. Phase 1 and Phase 2 (Startup and Exploration) of the project were completed between June 2017 and June 2018, and CoUL endorsed the SILS working group’s recommendations to move forward with Phase 3 (Detailed Planning). The working group will kick off Phase 3 at a planning meeting in September 2018 held at UC San Diego’s Geisel Library.

More information is available at the University of California Libraries website. The UC San Diego Library will continue to update its users as the process evolves and progresses.
