LIRN® Overview

The Library and Information Resources Network, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation founded in 1996, is a consortium of educational institutions which have joined to share access to information resources. LIRN® grew out of a project of the Advisory Council of the (Florida) State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities and is now an independent organization. LIRN® provides group purchasing and centralized management of electronic information resources for its members, and operates a validation server which is a single login gateway to vendor services.

LIRN® is a multi-location, virtual organization, with business offices in Largo, Florida, and its officers, trustees, and technical staff are loacated at various locations around the United States. Phone numbers and addresses are available for our trustees and officers/staff tabs above. The LIRN® gateway server is housed in the state of the art commercial data center of Peak 10 Data Center Solutions in Tampa, Florida.

A LIRN® Board of Trustees teleconference is held on the last Thursday of each month between 10 and 11 a.m. Eastern time unless otherwise noted. All LIRN® members (and potential members) are welcome to participate. We will be using the Raindance dial in number unless otherwise announced: (888) 693-8686, conference ID 7939950604.
