Statewide Resource Sharing

Resource sharing platform: FLIN SHAREit

Update on our work to create a statewide resource sharing platform: we are happy to announce that we have signed a contract with Auto-Graphics Inc. 

The new platform, FLIN SHAREit, will display participating libraries' catalogs to patrons, no matter what ILS is in use. 

For the majority of the participating libraries, FLIN SHAREit will use a Z39.50 connection to check each catalog in turn to see if they own the requested item, whether it is currently available and whether it is in a lendable location and format. This will make it possible for patrons from all types of libraries to discover items they need and request them.

For libraries that lack a live connection and would like to participate, FLIN SHAREit can check a union database to see if a requested item is listed.
