Resource Sharing

Resource sharing is a concept which has developed to include many cooperative activities between libraries and other stakeholders. Interlibrary loan continues to be the mainstay of resource sharing. However, union catalogue development, cooperative cataloguing, cooperative reference, cooperative collection development and joint storage of material are all components of A Canadian Information Resource Sharing Strategy. The development of the national resource sharing infrastructure described in the strategy depends on input from all stakeholders. The National Library therefore is making a number of consultation documents available for comment.
