Daval, Nicola, Ed.
Papers from the joint meeting are assembled in this document. Each of the meeting's five program sessions featured presentations by a Standing Conference of National and Universal Libraries (SCONUL) director and an Association of Research Libraries (ARL) director. The presentations highlight perspectives from both sides of the Atlantic and are intended to provide a basis for understanding the challenges faced by the member institutions of both groups. The program sessions covered: (1) "Sharing Resources: Do We Have Valid Models?" (Brian Burch, University of Leicester, and David H. Stam, Syracuse University); (2) "In an Environment with Limited Funding, How Can Research Libraries Increase Their Effectiveness for Collection Development and Sharing?" (Reg Carr, University of Leeds, and Graham R. Hill, McMaster University); (3) "How Can Local and National Collection Development Policies Be Linked with Each Other and Related to International Preservation Responsibilities?" (James F. Govan, University of North Carolina, and Michael Smethurst, British Library); (4) "How Can Collection Development and Management Be Most Effectively Organized and Staffed?" (Barry Bloomfield, British Library, and Sheila Creth, University of Iowa); and (5) "Is Stimulation of Cooperative Interinstitutional and Multinational Planning of Collection Development Worth the Effort?" (Fred Radcliffe, University of Cambridge, and Martin D. Runkle, University of Chicago). Appendices include a summary of the ARL business meeting, a report on association activities, a list of participants in the joint meeting, and descriptions of ARL and SCONUL. (SD)
