Lincoln Trail Libraries System strives to find ways to help libraries
save money by working on common issues cooperatively. LTLS
works to maximize the purchasing power of its member libraries in
2 ways -- by working with organizations that negotiate favorable
pricing for libraries and by directly negotiating favorable discount
agreements with vendors of goods and services of interest to member
such as supplies, furniture,
print and non-print materials, barcode labels
for online libraries, and electronic reference

on behalf of all Illinois libraries and regional library systems.
