other Nebraska libraries through the OCLC Interlibrary Loan system. The
amount per item varies by quarter depending on available funds.
To participate in the program, please complete the
Nebraska Resource Sharing
Participation Program Agreement Form.

libraries and special libraries:
- Direct payment: made electronically to an account for

than a library account, this document can be given to officials as a clarification
of why funds must be
expended for library purposes.
- Database account deposit: these funds are
held by the Nebraska Library Commission and may be used by the library to
pay for products and
services invoiced by the Library Commission. Products and services may
include databases, OverDrive subscriptions, CatExpress subscriptions and
