This state-funded service coordinates the networking of information resources and services between school libraries in the Otsego Northern Catskills BOCES. It is a consortium of school libraries joining together for the purpose of resource sharing to meet the needs of students, teachers and administrators in component districts. Services include interlibrary loan, consulting, and ongoing professional development workshops in all areas of information literacy, curriculum development, policy and services.

The SLS maintains a current regional union catalog of library holdings available within our BOCES and the five adjacent BOCES' School Library Systems in the South Central Region of New York State. This regional "SCOOLS catalog" is accessible via the WEB.  Delivery of interlibrary loan materials is through electronic mail, fax, UPS, or the BOCES courier service. See COSER 505 and 521.
