New Resource Sharing and BiblioTemps® Assistant

Greetings! My name is Shelah Coullard and I would like to introduce myself as the newest MLS employee. I will be helping both the Resource Sharing and BiblioTemps teams at the Massachusetts Library System. My duties will include data entry, reports, routine communications and marketing. My role is an integral link between candidates and temporary employees of MLS’s BiblioTemps service.

I graduated from Lawrence Technology University in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management with a Marketing minor. Since then I have worked as an Administrative Professional for many diversified industries and I have experience in all aspects of office procedures, practices, and systems. My expertise runs the gamut from office organization to employee training and from database management to document production. I am excited to join the MLS team.

I can be reached at or 508-357-2121 ext. 322. I look forward to helping you!

Mediated ILL – Fully Staffed. Fully Operational. And frankly delightful!

It’s my pleasure to announce that the Resource Sharing Team members that handle mediated interlibrary loan are all in place and that the service is running full steam at MLS.  Our thanks go to our partner organizations and colleagues throughout Massachusetts who made the transition possible with special thanks to Minuteman Library Network and Old Colony Library Network.  MLS also owes thanks to the amazing new staff that took on the challenge and made it happen.  Go team!
