At a time when budgets are dwindling, libraries must overcome insularity through collaborative initiatives that allow them to support each other through resource sharing and networking. These collaborative networks can expand beyond libraries to include cooperative efforts with archives and museums in order to surpass challenges in the digital era. Cooperation and Collaboration Initiatives for Libraries and Related Institutions is a critical research publication that explores digital advancements in library collaborative technologies and the steps needed to implement them in order to achieve institutional goals. Featuring topics such as e-records, policymaking, and open educational resources, this book is essential for librarians, archival staff, museum staff, knowledge managers, policymakers, educators, and researchers.
