Summary

This paper describes the state of library resource networks in Canada, raises issues that must be faced by the Resource Network Committee of the National Library Advisory Board, and outlines some of the resource sharing measures and experimental projects undertaken by the National Library of Canada, the Canadian Book Exchange Centre, and other bodies in the United States, United Kingdom, and France. The concept of and need for a library resource network and the future of library collections in times of financial constraint are discussed, as well as the sharing of library resources by means of interlending, union catalogs, location services, document delivery, book exchange, and national lending libraries. Additional legal, political, and funding issues affecting resource networks are also outlined. Seven tables, a list of 19 references, and an appendix covering the background, terms of reference, and members of the National Library Advisory Board Resource Network Committee are included. Both English and French versions of the report are provided. (Author/ESR)
