Where academic excellence begins.
Your library is an invaluable learning space. Our products and services help you create an engaging and empowering experience for every patron, with the technology and resources they need to succeed, regardless of size or budget.
The tools you need to build academic success.
In order to help students achieve positive education outcomes, a library needs access to the best technology, tools, and resources. Our subscriptions are customizable and flexible to fit your unique situation. Our exclusive LIRN services were developed with your needs and challenges in mind.
Our LIRN Portal makes it easy for students to research and access content within your database subscriptions. LIRNProxy allows students to access online resources on and off-campus. And our LIRN Librarian Service can support your school with research support, faculty and student training, and accreditation support.
Built for your needs, and your budget.
We offer database subscription packages and services for all school types — from technical trade schools to upper level medical and business programs. We’ll help you choose the specific content you need for your students’ programs of study—so you can cut down on costs and only pay for the resources you need.
Through our consortium buying power, you get the best value for a broad array of specialized databases and library resources. You receive one quote, one invoice and work with one provider: us. We negotiate directly with vendors, making your buying process easy and low-pressure.
You empower students. We empower you.
We’re staffed with a team of librarians who have Masters degrees from ALA-accredited programs, and LIRN has over 20 years of experience working with libraries like yours. We’re driven to help librarians, faculty, and students grow their research skills and information literacy—so that they have everything they need to thrive in their academic careers and beyond.
