Request for Proposals for Integrated Library System

The Oceanside Public Library has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking qualified vendors to supply and support a web-based, hosted, Integrated Library System (ILS), also known as a Library Management System or Library Services Platform. Such systems go far beyond providing the digital equivalent of a “card catalog” and other traditional library tools, and have become of great value to Libraries’ customers as well as their staffs and volunteers. The ILS provided will be expected:


  • to be web-based and hosted--critical to economic and technological sustainability
  • to offer all of the current system’s services or equivalents
  • to provide improved levels of customer response, both self-service and staff-mediated
  • to offer integration and efficiency for services that are not connected to the current ILS
  • to deliver timely implementation and all needed training and support.

The RFP may be found on the City’s website:

Proposals must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. PST on Friday, October 27, 2017. Please direct all questions to Samuel Liston, Library Technology Analyst, at no later than Friday, October 13, 2017.
