Thing # 17
I am quite aware of the ELM data bases and see their value. I admit to being frustrated with the fact that the right up mentions that they are free and available to all Minnesota citizens. As far as I am aware this is not true, at least for five small libraries who have chosen not to be a part of a regional system. They seem to be held hostage for their being independant. Those Minnesota citizens are not allowed free and equal access do to "turf protection".
