School Library Automation


SWBOCES provides computerized library management systems (CoSer 512).  Online catalogs, including support for Follett Destiny, Mandarin, and OPALS, allows students and faculty to effectively use the resources of the school library media center.  On-site training provides improved technical service and maintenance of library collections.  Through technical planning and consultation, automation of the school library becomes part of the district's technology plan in providing appropriate on-site and remote electronic access for students.  

CoSer 512 also includes digital book services of eBook and audiobook formats for elementary and secondary schools from the SWBOCES SLS Digital Library collections.  Shared collections among districts as well as private building collections are available from OverDrive/Sora, Tales2Go, GVRL - Gale Virtual Reference Library and Rosen Digital.
