Needs Assessment for Statewide Database Licensing – Request for Proposals RFP 14-12. The Washington State Secretary of State, Washington State Library Division solicits responses to conduct a needs assessment for Statewide Database Licensing (SDL), a project of the Library Development Program at the Washington State Library. Currently participating in the project are almost all of the public libraries in Washington, all of the Community and Technical Colleges, more than 20 private institutions of higher education, a group of over 25 hospital, research, and special libraries, and, through the nine Educational Service Districts (ESDs), a large percentage of the state’s public and private K-12 schools. The vendor contract is with ProQuest, which provides a suite of mostly full-text products to the participating libraries that includes three major components:

Aggregated periodical collections;

Newspapers, both local (Washington State) and national;

Content designed to support K-12 schools and their students and staff.

Because of reductions in funding, both present and projected, it is necessary to review current Library Development Program projects to determine for which funding should be continued, reduced, or eliminated. The question of the continued relevance of at least some components of the SDL database package has also been raised given the ubiquity of search engines such as Google.
