Resources can take many forms: books, magazine articles, videos, etc. All member libraries of the cooperative agree to borrow and lend materials from/to each other at no charge. The cooperative has established protocols that member libraries must adhere to, which are documented in the Interlibrary Loan Code for NEFLIN Libraries. NEFLIN also maintains a list of NEFLIN libraries with holdings on OCLC.
If a library participates in FLIN, it must follow the policies and procedures in the FLIN Manual and information about their policies must appear in the ILL Policies Directory on OCLC.
NEFLIN also assists member libraries with the process of loading their library’s bibliographic records into the OCLC database. NEFLIN member libraries have contributed over 6 million records to OCLC.
In order for a library to effectively share resources they must first convert their catalog records to MARC format. The NEFLIN Board of Directors will accept proposals to subsidize this process.
