About the Pioneer Consortium
The Pioneer Consortium continues to expand the number of members that share the Bibliovation union catalog. The success of the early members of the consortium have been rewarded as many other libraries throughout the state join the union catalog and expand the collections available for resource sharing. The member ship has grown from the initial four members to twenty-seven in four years.
