The Valley Library Consortium is a Michigan private non-profit corporation. VLC provides the greater Saginaw Valley Community with access to shared library and information resources through quality, cost-effective automated services for member libraries.

Working Together

Quality Database

The VLC looks forward to continuing its service to libraries interested in working together to reduce costs and share resources through the cooperative use of an integrated library management system.

Members have spent many hours developing standards and procedures that govern the use of the database. Any new records added to the system must be in MARC format. This is crucial in maintaining a consistent and easily portable database when the VLC migrates to a new system.

Access to Thousands of Titles

One of the many advantages of the Consortium is that the members have access to a shared bibliographic database of over 826,000 titles and over 1.9 million copies.

Interlibrary Loan

The shared database also facilitates interlibrary loan of materials among the VLC members.
