Douglas County Libraries’ has recently experienced several successful collaborations. Together with a major database vendor, it collaborated with the local school system to meet the electronic resource needs of the 55,000 students, increase their database use, and save taxpayers $100,000 in the process. At the same time, the library worked with chambers of commerce and local economic development councils to provide startup and marketing information to small-to mid-size companies. It has paired with the local election office to provide assistance with election questions. And an innovative program now allows library patrons to check out a pass to local art and wildlife museums. These are those collaborations.
