Iamslic resource sharing goals

IAMSLIC Resource Sharing Goals

  • Equitably distribute the burden of interlibrary lending across all types and sizes of libraries

  • Help smaller facilities share their unique or geographically distinct collections with our global community

  • Simplify searching and borrowing

  • Incorporate libraries without online catalogs into the Union List of Marine and Aquatic Serials so their collections are accessible

  • Free resource sharing for all 360 (and hopefully more) IAMSLIC Members

Iamslic z39 50 distributed library

IAMSLIC Z39.50 Distributed Library

  • Launched in July 2002
