Project ReShare FAQ

What is Project ReShare?

Project ReShare is a new open source, community owned and driven resource sharing platform that is being built by a group of libraries, consortia, information organizations, and developers. More information is available at https://projectreshare.org/

Why is MCLS participating in this effort?

MCLS is participating in Project ReShare because we support innovation for libraries, and we believe ReShare is a new and innovative approach to resource sharing. We want to ensure that the ReShare development work takes into account the needs of a large, multitype consortium. We want to help develop a product that has robust integration with local library automation systems, as well as with other ILL products, and delivery systems. We want to help build a product that will provide libraries with the best experience possible – both for their patrons and for their library staff.

Is MeLCat going to change software?

At this time, there are no plans to change software.

Who do I ask if I have more questions?

Feel free to contact our Manager of Shared Library Systems, Debbi Schaubman (schaubmand@mcls.org), with your questions. (Note that she will likely tell you that it’s too soon to answer many questions you may have.)
