PARTNERSHIP 2. 0: Expanding Local Networks for Improved Reader’s Services
Creating Partnerships n The advent of user collaborative technology provides new ways to address readers/reference services. The same spirited, innovative thinking that catapulted Web 2. 0 services to the forefront in many academic libraries can also reinvigorate how libraries and information centers develop partnerships.
Creating Partnerships with international universities, foundations, and non-profit institutes offer exceptional opportunities for academic libraries in the developed world to “cast their nets” and facilitate reference and resource training for patrons.
OBJECTIVES n n n Recognize specific national or international, access to information needs in order to develop partnerships; Examine and critically assess current endeavors in order to ensure that new efforts are not duplicates of other, already existing program initiatives; Know the potential of existing technologies in order to ignite and reinvent readers/reference services.
Networking n n Reciprocally beneficial sharing of resources, developed or pre existing by two or more bodies (Edmonds 1986) Categorized into “exchange, coalition or entrepreneurial and one-way marketing” by Wilson and Masterson in 1974 (Mc. Dougall, 1997) 1950’s and 1960’s - Library cooperation 1970’s - Resource sharing 1980’s – Networking NOW - Consortium, partnership
Networking n The pressure on financial resources, development of technology, the growth in publishing output and the demand for access to it, have all contributed to the case for more effective forms of library networking, which can be seen at international, regional and local levels.
