OHIONET, on behalf of the State Library of Ohio and a multistate collaborative of State Libraries and regional library groups, has issued an RFP to identify and acquire an open source statewide resource sharing platform. The desired product would provide a seamless resource sharing solution, developed and released under an open source framework, in an environment of disparate integrated library systems (ILSs).  Specific information about the goals, requirements, timeline, and process is documented fully within the RFP, available at: http://www.library.ohio.gov/swrs/rfp

We strongly encourage all organizations and/or software vendors to read the RFP and consider responding to the RFP if the proposal is within the scope of your products and company's offerings. Formal responses must be submitted by January 30, 2009 by 3:00pm Eastern Standard Time to be considered.

Questions and comments can be directed to the State Library of Ohio.  Contact information is specified within the RFP.

Be on the lookout for OHIONET’s January-June 2009 training calendar, which is being finalized right now! It will be filled with new instructors, new topics, and distance education opportunities!

Once it’s posted, the calendar can be accessed at the following link. Look for it at the end of December: https://www.ohionet.org/training
