Libraries and Information East Midlands (LIEM) is a co-operative organisation which provides a framework for mutual help to libraries in the East Midlands. It also provides a voice for members in the inter-regional and national fora of inter-library co-operation. The Regional Librarian is a member of the Circle of Officers of National and Regional Library Systems (CONARLS).
LIEM aims to promote library co-operation and resource sharing within and beyond the region. A summary of material available for interlending within the region can be found below.
A searchable database giving details of nearly 1800 non-English language fiction collections across the UK and interlending availability is available via the Conarls website.
Libraries and Information East Midlands is a member of The Combined Regions and has a committment to improving the accuracy and currency of bibliographical data on the UnityUK database. Libraries and Information East Midlands members are encouraged to add their holdings information to the database.
Locations checking service
The LIEM Secretariat provides a free locations checking service for members who make infrequent use of interlending, and who would be unable to justify the cost of a UnityUK licence. Email us with the bibliographic details of the item(s) sought and we aim to respond to you within 2-3 working days.
