SHARE: Our New Catalog


As a member of the new Illinois Heartland Library System,  Lake Land Library will be switching to a new catalog-- called SHARE-- during the spring semester 2013.  When the move to the new system is complete, we will be able to provide access to over 4 times the number of libraries in our current catalog (LINC.)

However, during the transition from LINC to SHARE, some services will be affected.  Here is a timeline of the transition:  

March 14: Holds will be turned off in LINC. Patrons will not be able to place requests until the new system is in place.

March 22:  ALL unfilled holds in the system will be deleted and will not come back.  We recommend that library users check their accounts and print a list of their holds that they will want to request again.

March 22 - April 8: The LINC catalog will be in search-only mode, which means you will not be able to login or check your account status. Shelf status – whether an item is on the shelf or not – may no longer be accurate.                    

April 1 – April 8: You must have your library card to check out items.  New users can not be added to the system, so if you do not already have a library card,  you won't be able to check out any items.   

April 9: SHARE goes live. Resume all regular services. 

We will be trying to accommodate requests for materials from other libraries to the best of our ability during this time.

If you have any questions, please see the Library Director ( or the Circulation Staff (
