PALNI offers many different opportunities and support resources for librarians to take advantage of. Please explore some of these using the tabs below. (Note: You can read in more detail about the organizational structure and groups on the "Participating In PALNI Tab" of this guide.)
PALNI offers an array of services to supported organization institutions and libraries. Many of these services are a result of collaborative efforts by individuals across the consortium and some of the services are provided directly from consortium staff and coordinators. The services are available as an opt-in for any institution and are provided at no additional cost to a supported organization institution or library. It is through the deep collaboration model that PALNI is able to coordinate the number of services offered without additional costs.
