Abstract

Planned sharing of material resources in the Caribbean has not received much attention from librarians, and most work has concentrated on what resources are currently available. In a previous survey interlibrary loans were found to be the most important aspect of library cooperation and a new survey was conducted to see if this was still true. Public libraries were strongest in older Caribbean material while academic libraries were generally lending more in other subjects. Special libraries were the least self sufficient. Generally libraries are heavily dependent upon each other, and a regional body to coordinate library resources should be set up.
