Poster Session: CSU+: Connecting 23 California State University Libraries
The California State University (CSU) System recently migrated to a new, shared library services platform to support collaborative management and delivery of library resources. The Unified Library Management System (ULMS) connects all 23 libraries from each of the 23 campuses. This effort was led by the CSU Office of the Chancellor, in conjunction with key stakeholders throughout the system. This poster will focus on CSU+, the resource sharing service created to maximize access to resources from all 23 libraries. It will also focus on newly formed collaborations, building stronger working teams within the CSU; as well as, addressing some of the challenges -- including changes to workflow, getting the buy-in from all parties involved, exploring governance, system-wide training, a more transparent communication model and more. The poster will also cover the CSU ILL group, Interlibrary Services Partner Information Exchange (I-SPIE) and its overarching role on CSU+.
