Cooperative Library Services in Southeast Florida: A Staff Perspective
Hayashi, Maris L.
Resource Sharing & Information Networks, v18 n1-2 p61-71 Aug 2005
This article presents the staff perspective on the advantages of collaboration between a library cooperative in Southeast Florida and one of its member libraries. Collaborative relationships between library cooperatives and member libraries exist primarily to benefit library patrons and community users. Important relationships between cooperatives and their members' employees also exist, yet this aspect is rarely identified and discussed. Cooperatives provide the resources and services to staff that are necessary for the establishment and continuance of lifelong learning. Staff take the skills and knowledge they acquire and learn, and put them to use when providing high quality service to their library patrons. (Contains 3 figures.)
