Collaborative collection development : a practical guide for your library
They say two heads are better than one, and nowhere is this more evident than in the possibilities that grow out of libraries collaborating on collection development. To encourage these synergies requires systematic planning, selecting appropriate partners, and a long-term commitment from all parties. In this authoritative and practical guide, three leaders whose institutions have successfully collaborated for a decade share their expertise so others can incorporate their winning strategies. They explain the theoretical principles along with real-world strategies and results from their own experiences and from other consortial projects. For those libraries, both public and academic, interested in stretching limited budgets, Collaborative Collection Development provides the keys to: Expanding your collection Improving user access Sharing scarce resources Overcoming barriers to partnering Addressing economic issues Creating a framework for success Promoting and publicizing to attract new users Building from these successful collaborations, librarians, directors, administrators, managers, deans, and team leaders will find practical planning models that include research, budgeting, promotion, and evaluation. This comprehensive guide contains all the checklists, case studies, sample agreements, and references needed to facilitate collaborative initiatives.
