Resource Sharing and Cataloging

Resource Sharing and Cataloging

ShareIdaho is a system for resource sharing among Idaho libraries to build their capacity to provide access to information to their communities via cataloging, interlibrary loan, and metadata services. The Idaho Commission for Libraries pays for more than 40% of the statewide group services agreement with OCLC. The remaining portion is paid by participating libraries based on the type and size of library and subscription option. By pooling their resources, ShareIdaho member libraries help one another to mitigate the expense of providing these services. The ShareIdaho Interlibrary Loan Referral Management Center is a complimentary service offered by the ICfL to smaller libraries anticipating doing a low volume of interlibrary loans (approximately 40 or fewer), but that still wish to make this service available to their patrons.
