Overview of SWAN

Seventy-eight libraries in Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS) share ownership of an integrated library automation system known as SWAN (System Wide Automated Network). By sharing the cost of central site equipment, computer and database maintenance staff, and telecommunications, libraries of all sizes (including public, academic, school and special) have found it possible to join the consortium and to realize the advantages of automated resource sharing.

SWAN maintains an online consortium catalog for its seventy-eight members. The catalog lists more than one million titles of books, periodicals, music, movies, electronic resources and other library materials. The catalog shows which libraries own a given title and if the item is currently on the shelf.   Through the catalog, patrons can check their own accounts, place holds, track their reading history, and pay fines with a credit card. SWAN is the largest consortia of its kind in Illinois.
