About the Hawaii Library Consortium (HLC)

The purpose of the Hawaii Library Consortium (HLC) is to increase, enhance, and facilitate cooperation among libraries in the state of Hawaii through consortial purchasing of resources, expanding access to resources, and encouraging effective partnerships between and among member libraries. In addition to providing expanded access to resources, HLC also helps provide access to support training in the use of these purchased resources.

The HLC membership consists of a range of libraries and schools from the Hawaii State Public Library System, the University of Hawaii system libraries, private K-12 schools, and private academic institutions.

All HLC members receive access to a diverse collection of EBSCOhost online research databases as part of their membership; additional online resources from other vendors may also be available separately.
