Rationalizing Research Libraries in the 70's.
Five Associated Univ. Libraries, Syracuse, NY.
This symposium attempts to bring librarians and university presidents together, to alert the presidents to some of the conditions that have blocked librarians from more daring, and presumably more fruitful, cooperative ventures; to seek their understanding and concern for those considerations, and to elicit council, encouragement or discouragement to continue, and assistance in overcoming those barriers deemed surmountable. To accomplish this, this paper enumerates four possible cooperative library projects that librarians cannot implement by themselves. These projects include: (1) jointly owned and operated library facility for high density storage and special collections, (2) joint computer facilities, (3) cooperative collection development and (4) cooperative long-range planning.
