LION is Libraries Online


What is Libraries Online?

Libraries Online (LION) is a consortium of public libraries (plus one high school library and one college library) formed to share a common integrated library system and to provide easy access to all of the consortium's collections.  LION is currently using the Innovative Interfaces (III) Millennium software to provide services to its members. 
What does LION provide?
LION provides a fully functional online public catalog called OPAC. The catalog contains the full collections of the member libraries which can be searched simultaneously or by library. From the catalog, a patron can request any title, and, subject to the policies, an available item will be retrieved and sent to the patron via Connecticar. The LION collection totals over  700,000 titles and 1.9 million items.

LION now offers downloadable audio books via Overdrive.  This is a shared service and has a collection of over 700 titles. From the online catalog main page, click the icon at the top of the page and follow the instructions.
