circulation data transferred to ILS, etc.), and to share access to unique
local digitized content with other libraries within the Network. Califa and
Contra Costa County Library partnered to co-develop an open source eBook
Network, shared by, and accessible to multiple library systems in California.

Systems (BALIS) Innovation Grant, LSTA monies, and Califa. This position will
