collaborative collection development

The latest issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education has an article about the Orbis Cascade Alliance, a consortia of which my place of work is a member. The article focuses on book collections and sharing, which was interesting to me since I am mainly concerned with the electronic resources we purchase. In fact, I was in the middle of sorting out whether or not to join a collective purchase when a colleague emailed me the link to the article. Guess I’d better get back to work.
