Membership Types

Home > Policies and Procedures > Governance > Membership Types

SHARE is a consortium of multi-type libraries (public, school, special and academic) that share resources, including an integrated library system and other technologies. There are three types of membership: full member, transitional member, and affiliate member. The library director, district librarian, school librarian, or their designee will be the library's designated representative responsible for SHARE official business, inlcuding annual fee agreements and Members' Group voting. Any staffing changes that would affect these responsibilities should be reported to SHARE.

Each SHARE full member library agency has one designated representative of the Members' Group. Each SHARE full member library agency is allowed one vote on matters brought before the group.

Note: prison and special libraries will be reviewed on a case by case basis to determine SHARE member status due to their uniqueness.
