The NEOS Library Consortium consists of 17 Canadian university, college, government, and hospital libraries with 49 sites between them. Patrons (i.e. students, faculty, staff) belonging to any NEOS library have seamless access to most of the substantial holdings shared by NEOS members. As of March 31, 2009, NEOS holdings were 10,867,551 volumes (books, periodicals, microform). The substantial additional holdings of electronic books, databases, and journals are not included because licensing arrangements often limit these to primary users of each library.

  • The NEOS Library Consortium consists of 17 Canadian university, college, government, and hospital libraries with 49 sites between them. Patrons (i.e. students, faculty, staff) belonging to any NEOS library have seamless access to most of the substantial holdings shared by NEOS members. As of March 31, 2009, NEOS holdings were 10,867,551 volumes (books, periodicals, microform). The substantial additional holdings of electronic books, databases, and journals are not included because licensing arrangements often limit these to primary users of each library. Most NEOS libraries and branches are located in Edmonton or the central and northern areas of Alberta: Camrose, Devon, Fairview, Grande Prairie, Lacombe, Lloydminster, Olds, Red Deer, St. Albert, Sherwood Park, Vegreville. There is one member site in Calgary. NEOS member libraries collaborate in many ways: * development and maintenance of a shared on-line integrated library system * shared electronic catalogue of consortium holdings * shared patron database * reciprocal borrowing and reference services * interlibrary loan service supported by a document delivery distribution system * cooperative collection development * continuing education and staff development activities.
