UF has led a CSUL Task Force called The Statewide Storage Task Force for over 2 years planning for a new Shared facility for storage of low use materials. This Task Force has representation beyond the SUSes but the initial emphasis is on the Universities.
- FLVC Liaisons with the Statewide Storage Task Force: Daniel Cromwell and Wendy Ellis
They have settled on the name FLARE for the project. The funding has not been allocated for the full permanent facility. A decision has been made to move forward with an interim facility.
FLVC will be responsible for supporting FLARE as a separate institution in Aleph. We are proposing a pilot project to set up FLARE in the test Aleph instance on the FLVC-G server and to set up workflows for moving items into FLARE from other SULs and from UMiami. This project will include how to discover and request FLARE materials.
