Exploring Opportunities for Cooperation in California, a Forum Exploring Cooperation and Communication among Health Science Library Consortia. Proceedings of a Forum Sponsored by the Coastal Health Library Information Consortium (Pismo Beach, California, November 13, 1981).
Jensen, Marilyn Anne, Ed.
Speeches and summaries of group discussions from California's first statewide conference on health science library consortia are presented. An introduction outlining regional, state, and national cooperation among biomedical libraries and brief welcoming addresses precede three talks on the history and development in California of library cooperation, health science library informal groups, and health science consortia. A panel presentation on growing pains of California consortia offers information on three specific networks, one in its first year, another in its second, and a third over 2 years old and no longer receiving a grant from the National Library of Medicine. Reports of three discussion groups on training and continuing education, cooperative acquisitions, and ways of publicizing and developing library services are followed by a consideration of an agenda for future interconsortia cooperation based on experience in Atlanta, Georgia. Three closing statements conclude the conference. Appendices provide a sample interconsortium cooperative agreement, listings of California union lists and health science library cooperatives, and an annotated bibliography on library consortia and cooperation.
