Toolkit for Library Collaboration - Wed, 30 Nov 2016

Richard Parsons of the University of Dundee has authored a Toolkit for Library Collaboration.  The Toolkit, which was produced under the guidance of SCONUL's Collaboration Strategy Group, is designed to aid the selection and development of efficient and effective services within and beyond the HE Library sector and provides a pragmatic and universal framework for joint working.

Containing a key checklist for both testing the feasibility of potential partnerships and appraising, developing and enhancing established ones, it enables collaborators to develop and maintain a shared vocabulary throughout project delivery.  The Toolkit has been developed with first-hand reference to the Scottish Higher Education Digital Library and WHELF LMS collaborative procurement and deployment.

The Toolkit is available to view in its entirety here and the associated checklist is available to download here.

A wide range of individuals have contributed to the development of the toolkit, including Diane Bruxvoort, University of Aberdeen; Robin Green, University of Warwick; Ann Rossiter, SCONUL and Tracey Stanley, Cardiff University.
