Purposeful Collaboration for Research Libraries and University Presses [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Collaboration plays an important role in various activities of the library, including interlibrary lending and cataloging. University presses provide an interesting counterpoint, as they form business partnerships and collaborate in professional ways through the Association of American University Presses, but generally understand each other as potential competitors for sales and manuscripts rather than as resource sharers. When two parties begin to explore how to work together, it takes time and effort to establish trust. It is much easier to talk about collaboration and its potential benefits than to actually engage in it. This article looks at several papers exploring the benefits and practicalities of collaborative publishing between research libraries and university presses. Adapted from the source document.
