Minnesota residents get virtual library. (New Products).
MnLINK, the Minnesota Library Information Network, is launching the MnLINK Gateway to provide electronic access and resource sharing within the State. The service will provide all Minnesota residents (including schools) with access to a multitude of different types of library resources including library catalogs and licensed commercial databases. The new service provides Web-based access to resources contained in the libraries for the University of Minnesota, the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, and the Minnesota State Agencies. Other participants in the MnLINK Gateway include private colleges, public libraries, K-12 school libraries, and special libraries.
In addition, Minnesota library users will be able to use the MnLINK Gateway to request interlibrary loan resources from other MnLINK libraries. MnLINK contracted with Fretwell-Downing, Inc. for its VDX and ZPORTAL software for the MnLINK Gateway.
