Aim & scope

University libraries cooperate not only with other libraries but with a variety of other partners including institutions from inside and outside their own university as well as experts and organisations from the public sector and from the private sector. The seminar focuses both on fundamental aspects and on the prerequisites and pitfalls of cooperation projects. Best practice accounts will illustrate synergies and perspectives of cooperation projects and encourage scientific libraries to build networks. The workshop is open to IATUL members as well as non-members who wish to share their challenges and experiences within the proposed topic.

Main topics

  • The Logic of Collaboration
  • Collaboration and Infrastructure
  • Collaboration in Service Development
  • Walking on Clouds – Collaboration networks
