Praise from our Partners
“We spent some time cooing over the MnPALS Plus catalog and are now even more thrilled to be leaving our old system behind. Joining PALS will create many new opportunities for us to connect with other Minnesota colleges and universities, and as a smaller school, these connections will be invaluable.”
Director of Library Services | Leech Lake Tribal College
