CARI Final

A chance to win $200.00 in library materials from CARI! 

Ontario Library Service – North is pleased to announce the launch of the Collections and Acquisitions Resource Initiative (CARI), designed to facilitate quick and easy purchasing of titles, and to provide libraries with more substantial discounts by combining the purchasing power of participating libraries.

 

How does it Work?
Using lists and tools provided by the vendors, you order the material and it arrives shelf ready. A MARC record will be provided as well (OLS - North will ensure that a MARC record is available in the local JASI catalogue).
