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.

A History of Enhanced Scholarship

As the need to organize and automate labor-intensive library operations grew in the late ‘70s, the Project for Automated Library Systems was born. Today, PALS continues to help libraries across Minnesota streamline the process, so librarians can get back to the work they love.

Committed to Libraries

Deeply committed to libraries throughout Minnesota and across the greater Midwest, PALS works to advance knowledge by making information more accessible. Offering customized solutions to meet your specific needs, the PALS team continues to expand its network of libraries and actively works to ensure each of our members feels involved in a growing community of support.
