About the Pioneer Consortium
The Pioneer Consortium continues to expand the members in the LibLime Koha union catalog. The successes of the early members of the consortium are noticed by more and more libraries around the state and the consortium membership continues to grow. One of the main attractions is access to the LibLime Koha union catalog.
With the addition of The Beatrice holdings, the Pioneer LibLime Koha union catalog now includes over 490,000 bibliographic records; over 1.2 million items; and also provides support to member libraries using various 3rd party complimentary applications such as telephone renewals, self-checkout machines, and PC reservation software.
