The Multitype Library Board was established under The Libraries Co-operation Act to facilitate the cooperative development of the multitype library system in Saskatchewan. It provides a forum for appointed representatives of all library sectors in Saskatchewan to meet and discuss ways in which libraries can cooperate to share resources and services.
The partners in a multitype library system include public, school, special, and post-secondary education libraries as well as other information providers and the Saskatchewan Provincial Library.
A multitype library system is a network of working relationships, between any combination of autonomous libraries and information providers, established to share services and resources for mutual benefits.
The purpose of the multitype library system is to support communities in their access to affordable, qualilty information services.
