The new dLOC patron website will be released on November 29, 2021. In doing so, there are many fundamental changes.
Until 2021, everything lived on one site: the dLOC patron system, production system, all technical documentation, and all program documentation. Having only one site was easier in the early days, but now it makes things harder. To position dLOC for ongoing success, there are now 3 sites, plus production processes:
- Program Documentation: This new site is for all documentation, governance, news, and other materials.
- Technical Documentation and Resources: Now live on this LibGuide.
- Patrons: The new patron site will be out before the end of the year. It will remain www.dLOC.com
- Production: Almost all partners submit materials for loading using a spreadsheet template and file transfer via cloud storage or mailed hard drives. The new internal production systems at UF will be rebuilt from 2022-2023. Partners will be unaffected, with the spreadsheet and file method not impacted by these changes.
