Cooperation among Libraries



The idea that libraries should cooperate has become a mainstay in the literature of librarianship, but the author feels that this ideological view of cooperation does not always reflect the practices of the library community. This article presents a view of interlibrary cooperation as practiced, discussing the organizational components of successful cooperation, the history and current state of cooperation, and a view as to where cooperation is going in American libraries.
