News Release – MOBIUS to Implement ReShare Returnables for Resource Sharing

August 31, 2022

MOBIUS has announced that it will be implementing ReShare Returnables as
its new resource sharing system, joining PALCI, ConnectNY, and the Ivy Plus
Libraries Confederation who all have launched ReShare Returnables in recent
months. The MOBIUS implementation will coincide with its launch of EBSCO
FOLIO <https://www.ebsco.com/academic-libraries/products/ebsco-folio>
from EBSCO
Information Services <http://www.ebsco.com/> as its new library services
platform. The MOBIUS migration, from Innovative’s INN-Reach and Sierra to
ReShare Returnables and FOLIO, will begin in late 2022 with plans to be
fully operational by the spring of 2024. Knowledge Integration will be
leading the development of ReShare Returnables with MOBIUS.

Donna Bacon, Executive Director of MOBIUS, says that ReShare and FOLIO
present an opportunity for MOBIUS members to move to open source resources
with expert support. “Being part of an open-source community for our first
library services platform is a significant move forward that will
streamline processes, manage resources and leverage modern technologies,”
Bacon noted. “We are eager to collaborate with the FOLIO and Project
ReShare communities and hope to contribute to both projects' future
developments.”

Knowledge Integration will partner with MOBIUS to develop features in
ReShare Returnables that support direct consortial borrowing. Ian Ibbotson
of Knowledge Integration, technical architect for Project ReShare, is keen
to build on the relationship to expand the functionality with ReShare and
promote interoperability with FOLIO.  “Being a small UK-based company with
a solid commitment to developing open source solutions for libraries, we
are excited by this partnership between Project ReShare, EBSCO, and
MOBIUS,” Ibbotson said. “The leadership shown by MOBIUS in supporting the
development of direct consortial borrowing functionality will benefit
libraries worldwide and grow the wider resource-sharing capabilities of the
project well beyond its traditional ILL roots.”

Project ReShare is a user-centered, community-owned resource sharing
platform that will allow for the connection of disparate ILS platforms.
MOBIUS has been an active, contributing member of the ReShare community
since December of 2020. Adopting ReShare allows other libraries on
disparate ILS systems to join MOBIUS. MOBIUS believes that ReShare offers
more flexible opportunities to include a wider variety of platforms as the
consortium continues to grow and evolve.

About MOBIUS

Since its founding in July 1998, MOBIUS has transformed library services
for the citizens of Missouri.  Formerly a part of the University of
Missouri System, on July 1, 2010 MOBIUS became a Missouri not-for-profit
corporation with 501 (C)(3) tax-exempt status.  Thanks to the hard work and
dedication of its members, the organization has grown from 50 founding
charter members to 80 members which include 64 academic libraries,11 public
libraries, 4 special libraries, and the Missouri State Library, serving
more than 230 physical branches.

The consortium’s purpose is to share library materials, information, and
services using accessible, cost effective methods.  It is our goal to
create equal access to materials and information for all of our users.
Today, the MOBIUS Union Catalog has expanded to include more than 29
million items, serving users in Missouri and into Oklahoma, Iowa, Kansas,
Arkansas and Texas.  A courier service delivers library materials to member
libraries across Missouri and Iowa and connects us to libraries via the
CLiC (Colorado) and TransAmigos courier networks.



About Project ReShare

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.
