Library Consortia: Do the Models Always Work?
Wright, David A.
Resource Sharing & Information Networks, v18 n1-2 p49-60 Aug 2005
Successful models of statewide library consortia are evident in many locations. Academic libraries in independent institutions of higher education in Mississippi must seek alternate affiliations since they do not participate in the MAGNOLIA consortium for public institutions. What does the future hold, especially for database licensing for libraries that are not able to participate in a statewide project? Profiles of some existing and emerging consortia in other states are provided as potential models for the state of Mississippi. (Contains 14 notes.)
