DescriptionAcademic libraries seek opportunities to more effectively manage and share their resources, enhance the programs and services they deliver, and navigate a changing scholarly communications environment. Although there is a long history of collaboration among libraries, many librarians channeled concerns expressed by their local constituents, objecting to calls for broader, systematic collaboration in collection development out of fear that local needs could not be adequately addressed by distributed collections. This study examines the use of area studies materials across the network of libraries by analyzing five years of ILL lending data and local use data from a single institution in order to lay groundwork for future explorations into the feasibility of implementing a robust cooperative collection development model for area studies materials.
