Ontario Library Service - North is currently running the following pools:

When offering a new pool an email is sent to Ontario public libraries to promote a new pool and gather a commitment from libraries.  

Each pool will have their own individual committees, comprised of members from Northern and Southern libraries and a staff member from OLS - North. Each committee is tasked with creating the terms and conditions, procedures and costs for their pool.

Note: OLS - North requires 10 libraries to sign up for each pool offered before we can commit to running it.

Pools Committees

OLS - North facilitates the development of material pools. Pools are a great way to make money go further by combining the purchasing power of several libraries together. Pools achieve economies of scale. OLS - North will purchase and process the material, cover the cost of administration and schedule exchanges.

Individual committees are formed for each pool. Each committee is comprised of members from Northern and Southern libraries and is assisted by a staff member from OLS - North. The committee is tasked with the terms and conditions, procedures and costs, for their pool.
