Collecting Partners

Collecting Partners

The University of California, Santa Cruz Library participates in a wide variety of cooperative collection development programs. We work closely with our UC peer libraries to maximize the depth and breadth of our respective collections. Additionally, we work with other academic institutions and membership organizations under the guidance of a range of formal and informal agreements that expand access to collections through leveraging local acquisition funding, staff expertise, and resource sharing capacity.

This page identifies significant, active cooperative programs, including the names of institutional partners, references to texts of agreements, dates, and links to further information. For each subject or area program, the relevant contact is the UCSC subject specialist.
