Co‐operation and networking in library and information systems of advanced countries: a framework for countries with less developed systems

Co‐operation and networking in library and information systems provide a wider access to collections, improve public and technical services and enhance operations by sharing resources, reducing duplication and offering more cost‐effective services.

The experience of countries with developed systems can be instructive in social, professional, technological and economic terms. Raising awareness for the potential use of these systems, giving broader roles to organisations, developing communication infrastructure and maximising the use of technologies are key components for the establishment of co‐operation and networking in library and information systems of developing countries. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Co‐operation and networking in library and information systems provide a wider access to collections, improve public and technical services and enhance operations by sharing resources, reducing duplication and offering more cost‐effective services. These systems are frequently applied in developed countries. These countries are getting maximum benefits from these systems, for example, expanding their services, providing better user satisfaction and solving their problems. These systems are less used in LIS of developing countries. The need for the establishment of such systems is evidenced. The experience of countries with developed systems can be instructive in social, professional, technological and economic terms. Raising awareness for the potential use of these systems, giving broader roles to organisations, developing communication infrastructure and maximising the use of technologies are key components for the establishment of co‐operation and networking in library and information systems of developing countries.
