Founders and Leaders

Tenn-Share is very thankful for the volunteers who have founded, led and served the organization since May 5, 1996, when Tenn-Share filed itsPast leaders Articles of Incorporation, and even as far back as 1990, when a grassroots statewide cataloging idea was the catalyst for sharing resources across Tennessee's libraries.

1990 - Memphis Library Council forms OCLC Group Access Capability (GAC), laying the groundwork for the creation of Tenn-Share.
1991– First draft of constitution formed by volunteer committee; approved by membership in 1992; amended in 1995 and 1998.
