Collaborative Collections Lifecycle Project (CCLP) Spring 2024 Public Update Webinar


Networks of libraries have a long tradition of working together to expand their resources and provide more comprehensive coverage across all subjects through sharing of resources. As one of these strategies, larger networks of institutions have recently explored wider adoption of cooperative collections management, which this project defines as a process by which networks of institutions work collaboratively to acquire, manage, circulate, and preserve collections across the network. The CCLP seeks to overcome serious barriers to wider implementations, including the lack of available vendor-neutral interoperable systems, adequate governance and decision-making frameworks, and assessment tools. As more organizations test out this model, there is a need for standards and best practices that support cooperative selection, acquisitions, processing and analytics. 

In August of 2022, NISO, Lehigh University Library, and PALCI, along with more than 25 other partner organizations, received an IMLS National Leadership Grant to support the development of best practices for this lifecycle process and to prototype tools to support elements of the workflow. The Cooperative Collections Lifecycle Project (CCLP) was approved by NISO members in the Fall of 2022 and has been making steady progress toward our three-year goals of producing these best practices and prototypes. Over the past two years, NISO has launched a steering committee and six working groups and has begun research on communities of practice related to cooperative collections management. 

NISO will host a free public webinar on March 28th at 1 PM Eastern to update the community on the Collaborative Collections Lifecycle Project (CCLP), its grant from IMLS to support this work, as well as provide information on the  current progress of the associated Collaborative Collections Lifecycle Infrastructure Project (CCLIP) and the Working Groups within this project.

The CCLP Project and this free webinar was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum
and Library Services (IMLS) Grant #: LG-252384-OLS-22.
