  • IV. Direct library-to-library partnerships
  • IV. Direct library-to-library partnerships You need to seek a overseas libraries you have something in common with…
    • Example (academic): your university & a U.S. university both offer nursing
    • Example (public): your library & an Australian library both do children’s outreach
    • Example (school): your school & a U.S. school have a pen-pal exchange program
  • Academic:
    • California State University Fullerton & Hong Kong University
    • Library resource-sharing to support a joint M.A.-Communications degree
  •  
  • Academic:
    • California State University Fullerton & Pannasastra University of Cambodia
    • Librarian exchange visits
  •  
  • Academic:
    • McGill University Library (Canada) & China Medical University Library
    • 2 decades of partnership (in many forms)
  •  
  • Public:
    • Queens (N.Y.) Public Library & Shanghai Public Library
    • Exchanges, bi-directional lending of special collections, joint reference service, etc.
  •  
  • Public:
    • Colorado public libraries & Bulgaria public libraries
    • It all started with 1 librarian’s visit to Bulgaria!
  •  
  •  
  • School:
    • Cannon private school (North Carolina) & Tianli Int’l School (Luzhou, China)

  • V. SEA partnering
  • V. SEA partnering Libraries in neighboring SEA countries are sometimes overlooked as possible partners on the assumptions that
    • Their English is poor
    • They are less developed, so have little to offer
  • V. SEA partnering Libraries in neighboring SEA countries are sometimes overlooked as possible partners on the assumptions that
    • Their English is poor
    • They are less developed, so have little to offer
    But these assumptions are not correct all the time!
    • Example: Kuala Lumpur Public Library
    • Strong English
    • Completely modern facilities & collections
    • Financially well supported
  • CONSAL Web page Unfortunately, it does not provide a directory of libraries in SEA…but DOES provide links to them.
  • ASEAN & ANUILO Web pages ASEAN admits new member universities, and that then opens doors to partnering (library-wise) with other university libraries
  • VI. Other kinds of linkages/outreach
  • VI. Other kinds of linkages/outreach Some developing libraries mistakenly think library partnerships will yield a magic solution to limited resources. This is not true, and the wrong motivation for sister/partnership libraries
  • Linking to free information on the Internet is the best way overcome limited resources! And promoting/marketing these links is the best way to outreach to your users
  • Examples of some free library resources on the Internet to link to: www.ipl2.org www.libraryspot.com www.refdesk.com
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Examples of promoting/marketing these links to your users: California State University Fullerton  TESOL links (http://www.library.fullerton.edu/guides/tesol/websites.htm) California State University Fullerton  Business links (http://www.library.fullerton.edu/guides/business_web_sites/Finance.php)

  • I wish you the best as you make your libraries more proactive!
  • Thank you! Salamat Po!
