The Growth of Regional Cooperation Among Special Libraries in the Southwestern Connecticut Area.
O'Connell, Janet
When a corporation moves to the suburbs it often fails to take into consideration that the library facilities in that area are a vital information source for their in-house libraries. Librarians of newly-moved corporations in the Southwestern Connecticut area found only one library available: The Ferguson Library in Stamford. In order to achieve greater unity between the special libraries and to strengthen business and techical literature, the Southwestern Connecticut Library Group (SWCLG) was organized. A microfilm reader-printer and microfilm copies of scientific journals were purchased for the Ferguson Library and made available to all members. The group also conducted workshops to keep members in touch with new developments in the field of librarianship. The most important undertaking by the group was a computer-produced union catalog of periodical holdings. A brochure describing the SWCLC is included. (Author/DS)
