Collaboration = Doing More with More
Like many others throughout the country, New York libraries have been tasked with providing more essential services with fewer financial resources -- an equation that is clearly unsustainable. Instead, libraries must focus on doing more with more, building on existing collaborations and developing new ones, removing barriers to cooperation, and proving that working together ultimately improves the services provided to constituent communities. That is the conclusion of I2NY: Envisioning an Information Infrastructure for New York
, a report released by the NY 3Rs Association, Inc. “The I2NY Report reflects our assessment of the current conditions for collaboration and shared project management among libraries in the state,” stated Kathleen Miller, Chair of the NY 3Rs Association.
