Axe Library Consortium Growing-Adding Thirteen New Members

For many years Axe Library has been a part of a local library consortium that included the school district libraries, Pittsburg Public Library and Fort Scott Community Library. This has allowed users at any of these sites to be able to search the holdings of any of the member libraries.

With the advent of a new library system, Horizon 8.0, the consortium has attracted other Southeast Kansas libraries who either do not have automated systems or who want to migrate to the new system. A total of 13 Southeast Kansas libraries have asked to join the consortium. So far, Iola Public, Eureka Public, Coffeyville Public, and the Southeast Kansas Library System have had their local holdings added to the shared catalog server. Other libraries will be coming on the system one or two at a time over a period of time.

Consortium members and their users will share a web based catalog, accessible by any computer, at home or in the library. Axe Library is pleased to have these new members joining the consortium to bring better use of library materials to Southeast Kansas citizens.
