Fenway Libraries Online (FLO) is seeking proposals to modify CORAL to
enable the ability to record and report Resource and Organization cost
Fenway Libraries Online, Inc. <http://www.flo.org/>, a 501(c)(3)
non-profit, is a consortium of ten academic and special libraries located
in Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
CORAL is an Electronic Resources Management System consisting of
interoperable modules designed around the core components of managing
electronic resources. It is made available as a free, open source
program. Contributions to the main CORAL code base must be approved by the
CORAL governance committee
The goal of the Resource Cost History and Reporting Enhancement is to
modify the Resources module to allow for the recording of subscription and
cost information over subsequent renewals. The enhancement includes the
addition of a year and note field to the Acquisitions tab and database
tables. The Expanded Cost History enhancement option adds expanded cost
history functionality that includes several additional cost-related fields.
The enhancement specification also includes the extension and renaming of
the current Usage Report module to include Cost History Reporting.
Attached to this email is the detailed RFP and Cost History Specification.
We welcome questions and proposals from all parties experienced with CORAL
functionality and programming. We also encourage CORAL users to share the
RFP and Spec with developers possessing the necessary skill set.
Our timeline proposes to have the final code available by December, 2104.
