Although academic, government, and law firm librarians have different roles and constituents, they share a common goal: to provide the best possible service to library users. Due to increasing resource limitations, doing so has become more difficult. In response to this difficulty, law libraries should consider how partnering with other types of law libraries may help them to maintain or improve services and to demonstrate value. This program explores how academic, government, and law firm librarians can create and leverage collaborative partnerships with each other for the benefit of their users and organizations. The program will focus on the benefits of such partnerships and how to implement best practices and utilize techniques for building these partnerships. The presenters will also share how they worked together to develop their own successful collaborative partnership.

This program is sponsored by the RIPS-SIS.
