Title: SILS project team completes phase 2!

The SILS Working Group is very pleased to announce we have successfully completed phase 2 (Exploration) of the Systemwide Integrated Library System (SILS) project and have approval from the Council of University Librarians (CoUL) to proceed with phase 3.

In phase 3 of the SILS Project, we will identify a systemwide ILS for the UC Libraries. Expertise groups to work on RFP requirements will form this summer; calls for participation will be managed by the Direction and Oversight Committee (DOC) and will go out shortly.
