Illinois libraries have unlimited use of OCLC cataloguing, resource sharing, content management and FirstSearch reference services under terms of a new three-year agreement.Services will support and be supported by the Statewide Illinois Library Catalog (SILC), a group online union catalogue created by Illinois libraries and OCLC that gives all Illinois citizens access to the more than 55 million items held in libraries throughout the state. That's according to a recent OCLC statement.
Daniel adds, Montana also has a statewide contract for OCLC services. Hopefully some states, at least the small ones, can jump on this bandwagon too! Is there anyone from Montana to comment on how well this arrangement is working out?
