About LINKcat

What Is LINKcat?

LINKcat is a library catalog with holdings for most libraries in the South Central Library System, a seven-county area that includes Madison and Dane County. You may borrow anything in the LINK catalog and have it shipped directly to your preferred pickup library. The service is free to all South Central Library System residents, who have a current library card. The service is managed by South Central Library System staff on behalf of member libraries, and decisions are made by a committee of member library representatives.


Contact your local librarian if you have questions about how to use LINKcat or check the online help on our site or at the LINKcat Help site.  If library staff is unable to answer your question, they will refer you to someone who can.  Or share comments and concerns with us via email or by calling Tana Elias, Web Resources Manager, at 608-266-4953.
