RILINK is a cooperative effort by Rhode Island school libraries to share their resources through an interactive, web-based catalog of library materials. Students and teachers at RILINK member schools can use their library catalogs to look for, and request, books or other items at member libraries. Items requested are delivered to each school through the statewide library network. Currently, 151 school libraries working together form RILINK, sharing their books, audiovisual materials and expertise to provide better service to their 70,000 students and teachers. (RILINK serves over 50% of Rhode Island public school students.) Read more...
