3What is the FAMIS Library Module? Librarians now have access to a new application, Books In Print (BIP), which allows them to search and create lists of library books and audio visual material for purchasing. After finalizing a “Book List”, a librarian can send it to FAMIS for purchasing.The FAMIS Library Module (FLM) is new functionality in FAMIS that allows purchasing secretaries to view book lists sent by librarian(s) from BIP. In FLM, these lists can be converted into POs which will be sent to the contracted library vendors for processing.FLM can be accessed in the “Contracted” Purchasing section of the FAMIS portal.FAMIS Portal Link:https://dfoforms.nycenet.edu/FamisPortal/Login.aspx
