Notes

Abstract: In 2006, the University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries began a more conscious effort to collaborate with the local Denton Public Library. This effort developed into three distinct programs: a seamless service for delivery of government information, a cooperative one-book one-community program, and public library workshops led by UNT librarians. These efforts keep all of the libraries in town strong as we share resources and knowledge and present a unified front to our citizenry. This chapter focuses on the dynamics of these three distinct programs, and identifies the pros and cons of such a collaboration. It also includes the procedures and timeline for establishing this partnership and identifies some of the key decision-makers to include in the planning process.
