The Texas State Library and Archives Commission is pleased to announce an opportunity for public, academic, and other TexShare libraries to participate in the Uplift Pilot Program for the Library of Texas Resource Discovery Service. Uplift is defined as the process of enhancing a local library catalog so that it supports the standards and profiles required for the Resource Discovery Service. This pilot program will provide funding and technical support in order to upgrade and/or add Z39.50 server capability to local library catalogs. This will prepare the local catalogs for full participation in the Resource Discovery Service. Many Texas librarians have seen presentations about this project at TLA or at their regional library system meetings. This project has been developed with support from the Texas Center for Digital Knowledge at the University of North Texas and funded through a Telecommunications Infrastructure Fund grant. Further information about the Library of Texas project is available.
