Brief Summary

Our Consortia have been collaborating since the 1950s to share resources and services amongst member institutions. Our longstanding commitment to each other and to our collective success will enrich the conferences conversation on collaboration. Recently, The Five Colleges have expanded our collaborative efforts by working with the FOLIO Community and to adopt a new library system platform. The adoption of this open source system makes communication and coordination critical not only internally, but externally as well.
