Excerpt
Excerpt: Rationale for the paper. The study was undertaken because partnerships are growing in number and significance in the libraries of the nations in the European Union, North America, Australia and New Zealand. Partnerships increase because networked computers create the need for cooperation among different government authorities and public libraries and because national and state government officials, recognizing the transforming power of new networked technology, have pushed local public libraries into new partnership arrangements. They also increase because of the need to share limited public resources and to meet the public?s demand for one-stop services that no single library can provide alone. Finally, partnerships increase because libraries often have difficulty playing their increased equity role without help and because they want to play significant roles in community, state and national communications infrastructures. This paper provides both a context for and an outline of steps to be taken to establish successful library partnerships. It is designed to help library leaders think about partnerships, conceptualize how partnerships fit into their own operations and how to take the steps to establish, organize and manage public library partnerships.
