Saskatchewan libraries play an essential role in the educational, recreational and cultural lives of the province. They provide excellent service, engage in cooperative practices and utilize the latest technological advances to meet the needs of their patrons.
Post-secondary education libraries in Saskatchewan include the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan libraries, community college and vocational institute libraries, and Saskatchewan Polytechnic which has campuses in major centers across Saskatchewan.
Special libraries contain specialized collections in specific subject areas and are often affiliated with both non-profit and for-profit commercial organizations. There are many special libraries in Saskatchewan, which play a cooperative role in the provincial library system and in MLB initiatives.
The MLB facilitates co-operation among all libraries in Saskatchewan in matters relating to the development of library services. It provides a forum for appointed representatives from all types of libraries in the province, including, public, academic, school and special libraries, to discuss library cooperation.
The mission of the Saskatchewan Provincial Library and Literacy Office (PLLO) is "Strengthening libraries to ensure equitable access to global information, resources and library services for all Saskatchewan residents", and it is through The Public Libraries Act, 1996, that it is entrusted to co-ordinate and support the province-wide library system.
