The Vanguard school is a college who has agreed to participate in a pre-implementation phase of the project, lasting approximately four months (September 2018-December 2018). During this phase the participating colleges will go through the major steps of implementation, including training, data migration, network zone building, system configuration and initial workflow planning. The Vanguard approach is beneficial in raising the collective knowledge and experience of the system-wide library consortium with additional time to absorb the new information about the LSP and for decisions to be made on collaborative workflows, new policies, new services, etc. that may be facilitated by the LSP.
