History & Implementations

The “SCOOLS”  initiative pioneered OPALS’ open source library automation community. Six New York State School Library Systems developed a union catalog to provide Web-based, almost paperless, managed interlibrary loan services for approximately 300 schools in their regions. The database now houses more than a million titles (3 million plus holdings), and uses the Internet to communicate and manage the ILL process. In New York State, twenty seven School Library Systems now use OPALS’ union catalog to provide resource sharing and cataloging resources to over 2200 libraries.
