Library Collaborations and Community Partnerships considers the value of library, professional and community partnerships in improving health and quality of life. Describing a variety of community-engaged collaborations, the book demonstrates how libraries utilize their resources to enhance people’s lives.

This book is unique in its illustration of key principles of collaboration, partner engagement, shared leadership, project development and outcomes measurement, as well as the challenges inherent in collaborations among diverse partners. Included in this book are exemplars of collaborations focused on education, health, information literacy and capacity building for communities that experience disparities in access and resources. This unique publication highlights the innovative use of existing assets by libraries, communities and diverse professions to broaden access to resources, programs and information to those in need in a variety of settings and circumstances. The strategies, challenges, outcomes and lessons learned that are described in the volume have application for a variety of settings and populations.

Highlighting the key role that libraries play in guiding successful interprofessional collaborations with communities, Library Collaborations and Community Partnerships should be of interest to academics and postgraduate students engaged in the study of library and information science, education, health, nursing and social work. It should also be essential reading for librarians, healthcare professionals and community and professional organizations.
