Carolina Consortium Marks 10 Year Anniversary, Plans for Future Cooperation and Savings

On May 13th, over 100 attendees visited the UNCG  campus for the annual meeting of the Carolina Consortium. The group discussed ways that libraries can save money through cooperative action, and enjoyed presentations on e-textbooks, streaming films, and effective resource sharing. Founded by and lead by UNCG librarians, the Carolina Consortium consists of nearly 150 NC and SC libraries that collectively save over $240 million a year on consortium deals. This year, the Carolina Consortium celebrates its first decade of extraordinary cost savings, and of an enormous expansion in the number of journals, databases, streaming media, and other resources available to students and faculty at community colleges, private colleges and universities, and state supported universities across the Carolinas.
