The description of the service.

The Montana Shared Catalog is a cooperative project involving 177 libraries located in 99 Montana communities.  Public, school, academic, medical, and special libraries have pooled their resources together to purchase a robust library automation system. Members also enjoy the benefits of shared expertise and the ability to provide great service to library customers. Currently the Montana Shared Catalog uses the SirsiDynix Corporation's Symphony© product. Test out the MSC “Enterprise” catalog search interface.
