Z Target Searching is Coming to Access Pennsylvania On Tuesday, 11/15/2022. 
 That's Today!
As a pilot project between PaILS and POWER Library – designed to explore options for efficient and effective use of the SHAREit software – SPARK libraries have been set up as Z targets in SHAREit.
So, with Z target searching activated, a search in Access Pennsylvania will also go out and search all of the SPARK libraries’ holdings in real-time, without necessitating a full file load into the union catalog. 

Functionally, the Access PA user will get the same results from their SHAREit search query, but the Z target results do require an extra click to see those results.
What is that going to look like for Access Pennsylvania participants?
