SEFLIN was established in 1984, beginning as a demonstration project funded by the State's Division of Library & Information Services with a federal LSCA grant. Today, SEFLIN is known locally, regionally, and nationally as a leader in collaboratively planning and implementing technology that links libraries and communities in the five counties of Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, and Palm Beach.
SEFLIN's primary service clientele are the library staff and library users of twenty-five SEFLIN members who are university, college, school, or public libraries and library systems. SEFLIN provides a wide-ranging continuing education and training program which served almost 3,000 library staff in FY2000/2001.
