The Connecticut Digital Library - Update

William Sullivan, Administrator, Connecticut Digital Library

The Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Connecticut Digital Library was posted to the Web on September 11, 2000. A vendor conference was held on September 21, 2000. The deadline for RFP vendor responses is October 20, 2000. An RFP evaluation committee is in place and, as an important part of the evaluation process, teams of professional librarians will have hands-on access to all proposed databases. Computer Graphic Completion of the evaluation process is scheduled for November 9, 2000. The Digital Library Gateway and Authentication System, which will also provide a common access point to all Digital Library databases, will be developed and hosted by the Connecticut State University Systems Office in coordination with the State Library's Division of Library Development. Authentication will use IP address for onsite users (Phase I) and public library card number for remote users (Phase II). Plans are also underway to develop the statewide training program for all Digital Library databases. The primary coordinator for the Digital Library is Jane Emerson. For further information email or call Jane Emerson at 860-344-2521.
