Guiding Principles for Collaboration in a New Library Management System

Together, the 30 USG Libraries have over 7 million unique titles (over 17 million volumes) available to students, faculty, researchers, and our global community of learners (in addition to our GALILEO resources). The USG vision of “One Statewide Library” allows for an extensive, yet efficient collection in times of increasing library costs and economic constraints. The following principles should guide the investigations, discussions, and recommendations related to how we implement our next system and how we work together to ensure a core collection of resources and services needed for teaching, learning, and research at all USG institutions.

RACL agreed on these at the June 23, 2015 online meeting.
