Yours, Mine, Ours: A Study of a Successful Academic & Public Library Collaboration Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • This article studies the development of a collaboration between the Bryan + College Station Public Library System (BCSPLS) and Texas A&M University Libraries. Desiring to increase program attendance and add greater value to the local community, the BCSPLS approached the University Libraries to propose collaboration on a variety of events. The successes of the collaborative programs have met the goals of the public library while also increasing Texas A&M’s collection visibility and strengthening A&M’s ties to the public. The study demonstrates that academic/public library collaborations benefit the participating institutions and add value to the local community.
