About the McCook Public Library
The McCook Public Library is a focal community institution in the city McCook, NE. McCook was established in 1882 as the result of an agreement between the Burlington & Quincy Railroad Company and the Lincoln Land Company to form a new railroad center halfway between Denver and Omaha. Named after the Union Brigadier General, Alexander McDowell McCook, the city quickly became the center of commerce and trade in southwest Nebraska and northwest Kansas. Senator George W. Norris, known as the father of the Rural Electrification Administration, resided in McCook from 1899 to 1944. He represented Nebraska in the US Congress (both House and Senate) for 40 years.
About the Pioneer Consortium
The Pioneer Consortium serves libraries throughout the state of Nebraska. The consortium continues to expand the number of members that share the Bibliovation union catalog annually. The success of the early members of the consortium have been rewarded as many other libraries throughout the state join the union catalog and expand the collections available for resource sharing. The membership has grown from the initial four members to over two dozen in a few short years, with several others joining later this year.
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.
