News Release -- ConnectNY Launches ReShare Returnables

September 15, 2021


ConnectNY <https://connectny.org/>, a consortium of independent academic
institutions in New York State, launched ReShare Returnables on September
1, 2021. ConnectNY follows closely on the heels of the PALCI consortium,
which implemented ReShare Returnables in August.

The Board of Directors of ConnectNY was looking for a different product to
support resource sharing when ConnectNY joined the ReShare community in
2019. Pamela Jones, ConnectNY’s Executive Director, remarked, “We are
excited and proud to have implemented ReShare already. Our consortium is
small, but our membership is willing to take risks to improve services and
programs. Choosing to work with Index Data made the move to ReShare
possible for us.”

Jones also commented on the appeal of supporting an open source project
like ReShare. “It is exciting to be a part of an open source community
where our ConnectNY members have a say in the ongoing development of a
product.”

Tim McGeary, chair of the Project Reshare Steering Committee, congratulated
ConnectNY on its successful launch. “The ConnectNY team worked closely with
Index Data to ensure a smooth transition to Project ReShare,” McGeary said.
“On behalf of the Steering Committee, I’d like to express my
congratulations and gratitude to ConnectNY for being a pioneering
implementer of ReShare Returnables.”

ReShare Returnables supports interlibrary loan of physical materials
between members of a consortium. The software, built using the open source
FOLIO platform, uses an app-based approach to resource sharing workflows. Index
Data <https://www.indexdata.com/> and Knowledge Integration
<https://www.k-int.com> are lead developers on the project, with numerous
members of the ReShare community also contributing to development. The apps
include a member directory, queues to manage requesting and supplying
workflows, and a bulk update tool. A shared inventory app allows ReShare
libraries to pool their bibliographic metadata for discovery and
fulfillment purposes.

More information about the Returnables product and a video demonstration
can be found at https://projectreshare.org/products/product-demo.

Background

The ReShare Community is a group of libraries, consortia, information
organizations and developers, with both commercial and non-commercial
interests, who came together in 2018 to create Project ReShare – a new and
open approach to library resource sharing. The ReShare Community has a bold
vision for building a user-centered, app-based, community-owned resource
sharing platform for libraries to set a new standard for how we connect
library patrons to the resources and information they require.
