Conference Proceeding
Current and new methods of cooperation between academic libraries of the Pomeranian District. Formalization of current cooperation methods by establishing a new body — the Pomeranien District Academic Libraries' Association, with 12 member libraries participating. Cooperation between the libraries in Poland takes place both on the national and regional scale. This phenomenon is consistent with the spirit of the times, because through the cooperation the quality of library services can be improved and the costs of any innovations can be significantly reduced. There are many examples of a successful cooperation on the national and regional scale in Poland. Among many of these the all-Polish consortium VTLS and the Foundation of the Academic Libraries in Poznań are worth mentioning.
