SUNYConnect is all of SUNY (minus the Cornells) plus Alfred University. No longer will another exception be needed (i.e. "the Cornells and SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry"). The OLIS has been working with ESF to bring them into the fold.

ESF had already been adding interesting content to the SUNY Digital Repository, such as notes, drawings and photos from the work of landscape architect Fletcher Steele. Their library databases now feature SUNYConnect resources including Academic Source and Environment Complete. We are expecting some great additions diversifying the SUNY collection with ESF's participation in the newly re-started SUNYOne link to Fletcher Steele plans in DSpaceinitiative.

The OLIS staff have also been working with ESF, Syracuse University and Ex Libris in planning and readying for a migration of the ESF catalog and services to the SUNYConnect LMS. With that, the 57th library will be hosted on the SUNYConnect shared servers.

Welcome ESF!

Task Force Announcements
The SUNY Council of Library Directors and OLIS discussed formation of two work groups at the SCLD FallMeeting:

  • Shared Cataloging and Authorities Task Force
    Work with OLIS to document standards to be followed for workflow within a shared cataloging and authorities link to SCLD blogenvironment based on one record for each bibliographic entity. (excerpt of committee charge)
  • Discovery Systems Task Force
    Evaluate the benefits and costs of a SUNYConnect-wide discovery system. (excerpt of committee charge)

SUNYOne is Back
Eleven SUNYConnect libraries have opted to participate in the round of the Diversifying the SUNY Collection initiative. Once again University at Buffalo is taking a leadership role in providing oversight, administrative and link to SUNYOne reportaccounting services for the project. SUNYOne diversifies the SUNY collection by acquiring library materials that have been requested by students, faculty or staff and that are not available from any SUNY library.

Thanks to Brockport, Buffalo, Buffalo State, Cobleskill, Cortland, ESF, Jefferson, Morrisville, Nassau, New Paltz, Oneonta and Plattsburgh for making SUNYergy a reality.

Eleven SUNYConnect libraries are participating in the ebook purchase on demand project from the Western NY Library Resources Council.
