About the Dundy County Public Library
The present-day Dundy County Public Library was founded in 1932 as the Benkelman Women’s Club Library. Five years later, the library was moved to a room in the courthouse and operated by Women’s Club volunteers. With some additional funding secured, the Benkelman Women’s Club secured a lease in the Municipal Building for the library, where it moved in 1957 and was renamed the Dundy County Library. The Dundy County Public Library has remained in the Municipal Building since the 1950s and continues to serve the residents of Dundy County, Nebraska.
About the Pioneer Consortium
The Pioneer Consortium continues to expand the number of members that share the Bibliovation union catalog. The successes of the early members of the consortium are noticed by more and more libraries around the state and the consortium membership continues to grow. One of the main attractions is access to the Bibliovation union catalog.
LibLime, a division of PTFS, is the global leader in providing support for open development Library Service Platforms (LSP). Rather than sell software licenses for static, hard-to-customize software products, LibLime educates libraries about the benefits of open development, enabling them to make choices about how best to provide their communities and staff with better technology services. LibLime then facilitates deployment of the LSP in libraries by providing outstanding consulting, development, implementation, and support/hosting services. PTFS is also the developer of the world’s leading content management software, Knowvation, and specializes in meeting library personnel staffing requirements, digitization and metadata keying services.
