November 26th, 2008

The Detroit Area Library Network (DALNET) recently announced the addition of the Adam Cardinal Maida Alumni Library to the DALNET consortium. The first seminary and high school library in the consortium, the Adam Cardinal Maida Alumni Library is home to a collection containing a number of topics entirely in Polish and holds a rare book collection that focuses on Poland and Polonia.

“The library’s unique Polish language collection materials will add value to the shared resources of DALNET,” said DALNET Director Steven Bowers.

Located in Orchard Lake, the Adam Cardinal Maida Alumni Library serves the students of SS Cyril and Methodius Seminary, St. Mary’s Preparatory and the Orchard Lake extension of Madonna University. The library has more than 90,000 volumes and 150 subscriptions to academic journals.

Addition of their records to the DALNET shared catalog is scheduled for January 2009.
