Abstract:

Cooperative Acquisitions among Law Libraries: A Review

 

Margaret A. Goldblatt & Bernard D. Reams, Jr.

 

77 Law. Libr. J. 657 (1984-84).

 

A brief review of established cooperative arrangements among large academic libraries may suggest reasons for the recent emergence of cooperatives among law libraries.  The authors examine in detail three law library consortia that are developing cooperative acquisitions plans.  Although the prospects for a single, physical national law library are slight, the full potential of a national database of law library holdings has yet to be explored.

 

Keywords: law libraries, cooperative acquisitions, national database, academic libraries, cooperative agreements, resource sharing, interlibrary loan agreements, reciprocal borrowing, cooperative cataloging, joint acquisitions, resource pooling.
