Objectives of Resource Sharing 

The objectives implied in resource sharing activity are very idealistic in nature. They are mainly aimed at providing convenient access to information to library users irrespective of the location of the resources. That is to say that libraries go beyond their own resources to satisfy the user requirements. The main reasons for resource sharing activity are: 

  1. Reduction in cost;  
  2. Avoidance of unnecessary duplication in information resources and their processing as well as maintenance costs; 
  3. Provision of greater access to information resouces to a wider category of users; and 
  4. Development of specialised areas of collection building each member library concentrating on areas of its own concern.
