Shared Library Services
There is a persistent legend, particularly promoted by Tim Coates, that UK library authorities do not share services. In fact this is not so, and the next Brent Council Cabinet agenda gives an example. It is considering two different ways to purchase library stock, and achieve discounts through economies of scale. Such arrangements are common, although entering into them is more complicvated than some library campaigners seem to believe.
