Cooperative Activities of the University of California Libraries.
The report documents current cooperation activities between University of California (UC) libraries and others. Information about programs, procedures, and agreements was gathered in the fall of 1976 from staff members at the nine UC campuses and from librarians at other California institutions. Information sharing between on-campus and off-campus users is accomplished through systemwide lists of library holdings, machine-readable data bases (currently being built) and availability of materials through direct borrowing or interlibrary loan. An intercampus bus system transports both students and materials between the many libraries daily. The library collection building program is a cooperative effort to avoid duplication of costly and/or seldom used items. Automation projects and programs are coordinated through Universitywide Library Automation Program (ULAP). Several projects developed by UC campuses have been shared by non-UC campuses and medical center libraries in the state. Library planning and coordination are under the direction of the Library Council and its nine task forces with support by regional, interinstitutional and professional groups such as the American Library Association, Medical Library Association, and Special Library Association.
