Member Types

MOBIUS Managed

Libraries that are on the multi-tenant shared FOLIO system hosted by EBSCO and managed by MOBIUS. 


Libraries who have their own contract with an ILS vendor and host and manage their own system.  These libraries connect to our OpenRS system for the purpose of resource sharing.

OpenRS can currently connect with Sierra, Polaris, and FOLIO systems. Additional connections are in development.
