Systemwide Digital Library Services

Systemwide Digital Library Services oversees the adoption, development, implementation, and support of systemwide library information systems aimed at providing improved management of, and greater access to, the collections and services of the CSU Libraries.

Major Projects

The Unified Library Management System is a shared library services platform utilizing Alma and Primo to integrate the CSU libraries’ various back office functionality into a single system, creating more streamlined workflows for managing print and electronic resources, and saving the CSU close to a million dollars a year.  The system provides extensive consortium functionality, including centralized e-resource management, collaborative metadata management, systemwide analytics, and resource sharing, allowing the libraries to collaboratively manage their collections, eliminate duplicate work at each campus, and leverage local expertise for the benefit of the whole CSU.

ScholarWorks is a suite of open source systems for managing, preserving, and providing access to the unique digital collections of the CSU, including electronic theses and dissertations, faculty research publications, open educational resources, and digitized historical materials, as well as tools to support scholarly publishing, including open access journals.
