Our library belongs to a consortium of small, private academic libraries throughout the state of Indiana. The consortium of the Private Academic Library Network of IndianaPALNI, comprises twenty-four libraries. The PALNI system is managed by a project team at the Indiana Cooperative Library Services Authority (INCOLSA) in Indianapolis, Indiana. The system includes a shared online library catalog, as well as subsystems to support each library's circulation control, technical services, and reference activities. All of these institutions have joined PALNI because of a belief in the power of collaboration as a mechanism for improving library services.

Hackelmeier Memorial Library is also a member of the Academic Libraries of Indiana (ALI) organization, comprising major research libraries, law and medical libraries, theological school libraries, and many undergraduate libraries.
