Title: Library Trends 54 (4) Spring 2006: Dual Use Libraries
Contributor(s): McNicol, Sarah (editor)
Subject(s): Joint use libraries Library cooperation
Abstract: This issue of Library Trends brings together articles by both researchers and library professionals to examine recent developments in joint use libraries. The first three articles provide an overview of joint use libraries. Haycock’s article draws on more than thirty years of research into joint use libraries to determine predictors of success. Bundy and Amey focus on evaluation, outlining a methodology suited to the unique nature of joint use libraries. McNicol’s article considers the effect of joint use libraries on the local community, something that is normally seen as more problematic than the effective provision of library services to educational users. The remaining contributors present case studies from different perspectives and regions of the world. These emphasize the fact that, although joint use libraries are most frequently thought of as shared school-public facilities, there are many other possible combinations.
