Aims of the Northern Collaboration

The Northern Collaboration (NC) aims to provide a framework within which libraries can work together to:

  • Improve the quality of services
  • Be more efficient
  • Explore new business models against a backdrop of rapid change in higher education and in the information and technology industries.

The NC is also a means of:

  • Exchanging ideas and good practice
  • Raising awareness among the staff of member libraries of changes in the external environment
  • Making connections between librarians and related professional groups.
