Solicitation Description:

The Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) is requesting information from vendors who can provide an interlibrary loan (ILL) system for Texas public libraries that are part of a Texas-based resource sharing consortium to use for facilitating and tracking statewide interlibrary loan item borrowing and lending. The system should facilitate the sharing of physical items (returnables) and document delivery (non-returnables) between Texas public libraries, between Texas public libraries and other types of Texas libraries, and between Texas public libraries and libraries outside the State. 

The objective of this solicitation is to identify qualified, interested vendors who provide interlibrary loan systems for library consortia as described in the Section II of this solicitation. We seek information on systems that have demonstrated the ability to effectively and efficiently managed the requested volume of resource sharing items and materials.

All ideas and information shared by Respondents with TSLAC are welcome. TSLAC would like to understand all available options that apply to the requested products and/or services. Any across-the-board, value-added, future outlook and comprehensive, integrated solutions that address other aspects of TSLAC’s and Texas libraries’ needs are encouraged. The response need not be solely limited to the stated opportunities in this solicitation.
