On Tuesday, April 22, NS Provincial Library launched new e-Library web catalogues for the 8 Nova Scotia regional public library systems that share our installation of the SirsiDynix Symphony ILS.  Since the holdings of all 8 systems can now be searched simultaneously from any of the 8 new catalogues, we are also disbanding our separate union catalogue for those libraries (the NcompasS Consortium Public Libraries catalogue).

The 8 regional public library systems include:
Annapolis Valley Regional Library
Cape Breton Regional Library
Colchester-East Hants Public Library
Cumberland Public Libraries
Eastern Counties Regional Library
Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library
South Shore Public Libraries
Western Counties Regional Library

For links to the new catalogues, and details on how to search all 8 of them simultaneously, go to:

There are 9 regional public library systems in Nova Scotia.  The holdings of the Halifax Public Libraries can be searched at:
