This collection was built by a group of over 85 libraries in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota that contributed over $200,000 to purchase eBooks.

The collection development process was executed by librarians representing four-year academic, two-year academic, public and high school libraries and titles chosen represent a wide array of subjects. The eBooks in this collection are mainly post-2002 imprints. Several reference books were selected for inclusion.

Libraries who contributed funds provide their patrons with direct access to this collection from their websites and catalogs via MARC records and receive patron usage reports. Citizens of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota may also access this resource through their statewide portals and catalogs.
