Libraries in Niagara Cooperative (LiNC)

What is LiNC?

The Libraries in Niagara Cooperative (LiNC) was established in 2010. This cooperative library consortium, consisting of nine Niagara public libraries was created to share an open source library catalogue system called Evergreen. It eliminates the need for individual LiNC member libraries to select, mount, manage and upgrade a singly owned library system.

West Lincoln Public Library system joined LiNC in 2020.

LiNC is a collaborative venture and succeeds due to the efforts of its members. LiNC’s integrated library system is housed and managed in one location, and LiNC’s libraries contribute annually to costs associated with the integrated library system. Costs to manage a comparable proprietary system would be significantly more.
