As of July 1, 2012, FCLA has become part of the state's newly created Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC). The responsibilities and assets of four existing organizations have been combined to create this new organization: FCLA, CCLA, the Florida Distance Learning Consortium (FDLC) and the Florida Center for Advising and Academic Support (FCAAS). (FCAAS is better known for the system it runs -- FACTS.org. FACTS is an acronym for Florida Academic Counseling and Tracking for Students). Visit the new FLVC homepage

The Gainesville office of FLVC will continue to provide state-of-the-art, cost-effective information technology to assist the libraries of the public universities of Florida in their support of teaching, learning, research and public service. Specifically, we implement and centrally support high quality computer systems that help the libraries acquire, manage and provide access to information resources. We provide software to enhance access to information for students and faculty, increase the productivity of library staff, improve inter-library sharing, and preserve digital materials for future use. Through planning with the university libraries, we ensure that these services are integral to the University libraries' ability to carry out their own missions in support of teaching, research and service.
We have successfully completed our consolidation of FLVC’s SUS and FCS ILS/Aleph systems. The two now run in parallel on one physical system, utilizing a single installation of the Aleph software. Testing is complete; libraries may now resume use of the software.
