Library of Congress Taps EBSCO to Build a New Collection Management Platform

The Library of Congress (LC) announced that it awarded EBSCO Information Services a “contract to further develop and implement a new, open-source IT platform that will revolutionize how the [LC]’s vast physical and digital collections are managed and made accessible for the public, Congress, Library employees and other institutions.” The Library Collections Access Platform software application will consolidate and facilitate physical and digital collections management operations. It will also provide users with a streamlined discovery process and new ways to obtain metadata, and it will use the BIBFRAME bibliographic description standard that is based on a linked data model.

EBSCO will use the FOLIO open source library services solution to provide a new platform that meets the LC’s IT requirements and user needs. “When the platform is fully operational,” the LC notes, “it will enable users to perform comprehensive searches of the extensive collections of the world's largest library. The system will have more advanced IT security controls and will accommodate evolving technology and growing digital content.”
