Description

The New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium has launched a series of initiatives that have produced big payoffs. Join us as the presenters share the experiences of their library and IT departments in overcoming the typical obstacles to collaboration between different institutions in different locations. This session will cover how cross-institutional collaboration can yield significant advantages, particularly for small departments, and how uneven partner commitments within a consortium can be mitigated. Examples of savings as measured in terms of budget and program development will be included.
