NYS BOCES School Library Systems
Many New York State Bureau of Cooperative Educational Services School Library Services use OPALS to provide access to and share instructional resources within their regions. Their union catalogs collectively serve approximately 1800 school libraries and house millions of resources that are made available to all students and teachers in their respective regions.
OPALS inter-library loan management features enable students and librarians to make and manage almost paperless requests. The ILL utility facilitates single requests, requests for multiple titles to various libraries and simultaneous multiple title and copy requests to multiple locations.
