National collection policy • Life cycle of a book in a wider sense • why not use the strengths of the collections of each library (including the NRL) ‒ they could even be improved by donations

• we have to rely on each other

• Nationwide (or area) agreement • based on the collection policy of each library ‒ common rules for resource sharing

• circulation collections are open also for resource sharing • suitable software needed, patron initiated ILL

• logistics has to be fast and reliable

International co-operation, repository library level • Network of repository libraries • even the biggest libraries have problems with space • bi- or multilateral agreements

• Repository libraries as national resource sharing centers • wide connections all over the globe • research sharing expertise

• Challenges • money (payments) • logistics (speed of delivery)

Future vision • One request button for clients ”I need this” • library locates the item and decides the way to get it ‒ sent from local collections ‒ acquisition ‒ ILL

• 48 hour service

• Cost savings • Collection management expertise

Conclusion • Needs of the clients are endless • they don’t care where they get the needed information as long as they get it fast

• No library can afford all the needed materials • We have to optimize our collections and access to materials • We have to utilize technology as much as possible • We need to trust each other
