Resource Sharing: BC Library Collections Gateway

BC ELN facilitates resource sharing among partner libraries, supporting the entire research chain from discovery to delivery, so that users will have timely access to the province's collective information resources. This page provides information on the core components and services which BC ELN coordinates to support resource sharing among partner libraries.

Media Resource Sharing

BC ELN supports media lending and borrowing among partner libraries through hosting procedures and information on our Media Resource Sharing page, as well as facilitating media-related communication via the Media Resource Team listserv.
