Systemwide Digital Library Services (SDLS) 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.
This shared library services platform uses 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.
The system also saves the CSU close to one million dollars annually and 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.
