Building on the notion of a shared collection, Emory University and Georgia Tech recently opened the Library Service Center, an offsite library housing general and special collections materials from both libraries.

In this session, we will provide the audience with an overview of the complexity of such a project, specifically addressing the following topics: the cultural similarities and differences of Emory and Georgia Tech; composition of the shared collection and how we built it; how we use ExLibris Primo to enable discovery and requesting; governance, financial, management, and staffing models; delivery and ILL services; the inventory control system; physical building design and preservation features; connection to the Scholars Trust initiative; and plans for going forward with a focus on collaborative collection development and possibilities for new partnerships.

The audience will be able to ask questions and be encouraged to share their own experiences with shared collections and shared facilities.
