The Library and Information Resources Network, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation formed in 1996, is a consortium of educational institutions that have joined together to share access to information resources.

LIRN® members enjoy the benefits of group purchasing, a centrally managed authentication gateway, on and off campus access for their students, as well as hosted proxy services, a powerful federated search solution, and our new consortium librarian service.

The LIRN® collection provides students with millions of peer-reviewed and full-text journal, magazine, and newspaper articles, e-books, podcasts, audio, and video resources to support their academic studies from ProQuest, Gale Cengage, EBSCO, eLibrary, Books24x7, and more, covering topics for General Education, Business, and Medical programs.
