Unley Libraries will be joining the SA public library ‘one card’ network.
The ‘one card’ network is connecting more than 130 public libraries across SA and will enable Unley Libraries members to borrow and return items wherever they are with their current library card.
The new service will also give members 24/7 access to an online catalogue where millions of books, DVDs, CDs and magazines in libraries across SA can be looked up and reserved with a click, either from home or in the library.
When items become available, they will be delivered to Unley Libraries for collection or other libraries that members nominate.
Social media (e.g. Facebook), online databases, e-resources and the digital holdings of SA’s public libraries are also planned to be integrated into the new statewide online catalogue.
The new system is shared between SA’s councils and is expected to result in improved efficiencies.
The ‘one card’ network will be rolled out over approximately 3 years across SA’s metropolitan and regional public libraries. Unley Libraries will be joining the network on 14 February 2013.
Information has already been disseminated to library customers and staff with further promotion planned.
