Member libraries create and maintain
local data records in Serials of Illinois Libraries Online (SILO).
These records contain a summary statement of a library's serial holdings.
When a member library changes its serials holdings (e.g., deletes issues,
deletes a serial title, adds a serial title, etc.), the library updates
their data record in SILO to accurately reflect their current serials
By participating in SILO, Illinois Heartland libraries act cooperatively to strengthen resource sharing throughout
Illinois, the United States, and the world.

for further information about SILO.

library shall share periodical holdings and will participate in the LINC
Union List of Serials project, which involves taking part in Serials
of Illinois Libraries Online (SILO). Click on each topic below to see
