A Tale of Three Projects: Sharing Special Collections Materials via Resource Sharing
As Resource Sharing operations have grown, modernized, and broadened, libraries are increasingly comfortable loaning legacy formats such as a/v, microformat, curriculum, or other materials. However, sharing of Special Collections materials via Resource Sharing remains a challenge for many libraries due to concerns about fragility, rarity, workflow, approval processes, and other issues. Libraries involved in SHARES, the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA), and the Ivy Plus Libraries have found some solutions to these tricky issues, created some freely-available tools, and implemented programs to facilitate the sharing of these rare, and often deeply needed items. Come hear how we’ve made it work!

Stretching the Elastic: Since One Size Does NOT fit all
Consortia come in all types of makes, models, and sizes. Those consortia that implement Interlibrary Loan collaboration offer their members invaluable services, such as quick service and cost savings. Consortia can also provide product negotiations, support, training, and expertise as well as a place to collaborate on shared goals. Learn about how three different types of consortia operate and how they successfully deliver interlibrary loan services to their customers. Our aim is to generate a lively Q&A session!
