Definition of resource sharing, Other Management

Definition 

Allen Kent provides a description of some of the concepts associated with the resource sharing activity in the following terms:   Resource sharing in libraries is defined as a mode of operation where by functions are shared in common by a number of libraries in its most positive effects. Resource sharing entails reciprocity, employing partnership in which each member has something useful to contribute to others and in which every member is willing and able to make available when needed. The term resource is used to designate any or all of the materials, functions, services and the expertise of the professional and non-professional staff. Resource implies a thing, a person or an action to which one turns for aid and help in time of need.

Secondly the term sharing implies apportioning, allotting or contribution something that is owned to benefit others. It implies partnership for mutual benefit. 

Library resources encompass print and non-print materials as well as human resources that are eligible to be shared in ways that enhance the quality of service." From the foregoing explanation of Kent, it must be easy for any one to understand the meaning and significance of 'Resource Sharing'. Obviously it does not mean that individual identity of participating libraries would be affected in any way. In fact, the gains of resource sharing are to be obtained without in any way adversely affecting the objectives or interests of the participating libraries. However, some minor adjustments may have to he made in exceptional situations, with regard to the operational methods.
