The System staff works to help member libraries meet the technological needs of their staff and patrons. We currently offer the following services:
- Database Authentication Proxy
Database authentication allows your patrons to access databases from anywhere in the world. It is a seamless process which only requires a last name and barcode to give patrons of your library access to library resources online.
If filtering is a necessity, there are some filtering services that can make Internet filtering less complicated for you and your patrons.
- Plinkit Web Site Creation
Plinkit is a content management system designed for libraries to help librarians maintain modern Web Sites that are easily updateable.
- Web Site Hosting
The System offers assistance with Web Site hosting with FTP access, using Dreamhost.
The GateNet consortium shares an automation system, which you can find out about here.
