Research library collaboration in Colorado : the birth and early evolution of CARL, the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries

by Fisher, Steven, 1951-

Abstract

The Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries was a pioneering library consortium that evolved from a small informal group of research library directors known as the Taskforce for Interlibrary Cooperation in the early 1970’s. Early projects including shared acquisitions funding, a union list of serials, and a shared public access catalog. Drawing upon published sources, unpublished primary sources and archival records, and personal interviews with early participants, the birth and early evolution of this organization is analyzed.
