Collecting Partners

The UC Berkeley Library participates in a thriving complex of cooperative collection development agreements with the strongest research library partners, enabling us to make a wealth of information available to the Berkeley campus community. On campus, we work closely with the Affiliated Libraries to maximize the depth and breadth of our respective collections. Extramurally, we work with peer 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.For more information, contact your library liaison.

In addition to collaborting with other research libraries to cooperatively purchase collections, we join with our peer institutions to foster an open access model for scholarly publication. For more information, see SPARC,the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition.
