Addenda #2: Content Integration and Searching
What are your expectations regarding AVL (the Alabama Virtual Library) as well as your other databases and local content goes? Are you looking for links to these resources, or true federated searching from within the Discovery Tool itself? Would you like pricing to reflect the full Federated searching capability, or to be included as an option?
Ideally, we would like to see all such content, e.g. AVL databases, HMCPL databases, ebooks, and local digital content, integrated and searchable through the discovery interface. If this functionality is available through the platform, any costs associated with licensing, customizing, or integrating this content should be provided as per section 4.6.2 in the RFP as an optional feature.
