Charge

Cooperative reference service extends a library's information service capability through interaction with other libraries or information centers. It is a process through which information assistance is provided, at least in part, by referring the user or the user's question to library/information personnel at another institution according to a system of formally established protocols. The purpose of the committee is to study, promote, and support cooperative reference service at all levels.
