As a Librarian, imagine yourself not only sharing ebooks and audiobooks with your local patrons but also with all your colleagues' patrons across Florida (and NOT having to wait for ILL). Imagine a brand new circulating collection of ebooks and audiobooks that you help select. Not a collection that is only available from one publisher or vendor, but rather from any publisher that you select. Imagine a growing collection of new materials that is available 24/7. Imagine collaborating on a state-wide project in Florida that has NEVER been done before and can fundamentally change how we deliver ebooks and audiobooks to all our patrons. If your imagination is peeked.... welcome to the reality of Florida SHARES!
The subpages of this guide are intended to help answer many of the common questions librarians and academic library administrators may have about the Florida SHARES project and how this next-gen system can help you and your patrons.
