Related Notice ID 1305M321QNRMA0070

“2. OBJECTIVE AND SCOPE The NOAA Central Library is planning to replace its current legacy system with a cloud-based solution that offers flexibility and interoperability and includes a Library Services Platform (LSP), an Electronic Resources and License Manager, and a Discovery Interface that showcases the Library’s print, electronic, digital collections, and a Fedora-based Institutional Repository. This includes a migration of data with a detailed timeline, plan, and recommendations for migration of data for approximately 165,130 titles/records representing 276,511 items (volumes) from the Library’s current Sirsi Symphony system into the new LSP. The NOAA Central & Network Libraries currently have 22 library locations and approximately 42 shelving locations.

This solution will include:

  • A plan to migrate the necessary data in the first six (6) months
  • An LSP to replace the existing ILS while continuing to support the NOAA Library and Information Network’s 21 library locations;
  • An Electronic Resources and License Manager to store and manage electronic resource license terms and conditions; and
  • A Discovery System to replace the existing online catalog…”

“3. REQUIREMENTS & DELIVERABLES…”

“B. General System and Support Requirements Below are requirements that should be met by the solution as a whole.

B.1. Architecture, System Updates and Upgrades, and Reliability

NOAA Central Library will not consider any client software-based solutions, and will only review cloud-based systems.

Mandatory system requirements are as follows:

  • Be completely cloud-based with multitenant architecture-the only exception is for client software for digital asset ingests;
  • Be proprietary and not open source;
  • Act as a completely functional LSP in its own right, and not be tied to an underlying LSP in order to function completely;
  • Have all modules in full, operational release or, 1-2 minor modules in beta testing with production release planned within 3 months;
  • System deliverables shall comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 794d);
  • For the LSP and Discovery systems, roll outs of all upgrades, feature enhancements, updates and fixes for the solution should happen quickly and easily and without intervention by the NOAA Central Library or NOAA IT staff;
  • For any required client software, a straight-forward process for installation and upgrades; and
  • Ability to provide a schedule of disruptions to services with ample time for the NOAA Central Library to prepare.
  • Allow all libraries in the NOAA Library Network to retain their unique OCLC symbols for cataloging and ILL processes.

Desirable system requirements are as follows:

  • Not including scheduled downtime for updates, have a system uptime of at least 99.75%.

B.2. Data Security and Access

The system(s) must:

  • Be FEDRAMP compliant/authorized at time of award;
  • Follow all security and other protocols, and continuous monitoring, as required by FEDRAMP compliance; and
  • Allow the Library full access to extracting/exporting its complete set of bibliographic, patron, other data, and digital assets at no additional cost, should the Library terminate its use of the system…”
