Moving Forward through Community Partnerships
partnerships are an ancient tradition and certainly nothing new to
libraries, there is a sense of increased urgency to find and form
innovative collaborations. Some pressure comes externally from funding
agencies that tend to reward strong partner coalitions over solo
efforts. More insistent is a deepening awareness that partnership is
embedded in the notion of community; no institution can remain an island
if it seeks effective reach into its community. This month, we take a
deeper look at partnerships and collaborations that are moving the
library field forward.
