Welcome to the 2017 MLA Annual Conference! This year’s theme is Radical Librarianship - the power of libraries to provide access to the truth, strengthen our community voices, create opportunity for exploration and innovation, and assist our patrons to build a better future. Libraries have always been radical, but what does Radical Librarianship mean for us today? Join us at the 2017 MLA Annual Conference to help shape that conversation!

MNLINK 2.0, one year into the implementation of the new search program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

MNLINK was introduced for Minnesota library users in 2004 as a radical idea; allow end users the ability to search for and initiate their own interlibrary loan requests. The program has become very successful in expanding the resources available to all Minnesotans. In 2016 MNLINK introduced a replacement search program using OCLC's WorldCat Discovery. The new program has significant differences from the predecessor, as well as better integration with e-resources available to Minnesotans via Minitex. Attend to learn more about how this program works for your users.
