Central Iowa Collaborative Collections (CI-CCI)

Program Description

Began in the summer of 2013 with four goals: 1. Responsibly reduce the size of local print collections by reducing duplication among the participating libraries so that library space may be freed up for other uses. 2. Create and maintain a distributed, shared collection of these titles to ensure that circulating copies of them are retained within the group. 3. Coordinate acquisitions with the goal of developing a shared collection among the participants to reduce duplication and to leverage acquisition funds. 4.Establish an environment where exploration and additional areas of collaboration can flourish.
