Summary
As libraries face diminishing resources and increased pressure to provide innovative services, librarians are looking to partnerships that cross departmental and institutional boundaries to bring together the necessary expertise to complete unique, finite projects. Flexibility mixed with creativity on the part of administrators, supervisors and staff in these cooperative efforts is fundamental in making the most of new ideas and new approaches. The online exhibition and discovery portal created for the Lilly Library's War of 1812 related collections are the result of such a collaborative effort, one that brought together expertise from the Lilly Library and outside specialists in metadata description and digitization. This presentation will discuss the results of this project and share relevant issues that will help others who are contemplating such partnerships.
