AMIGOS Bibliographic Council, Inc. (Dallas, Texas) and the Bibliographic Council for Research (BCR) (Denver, Colorado) have entered into a one-year pilot project which provides free reciprocal borrowing between participating libraries in both networks.
For the duration of the project, libraries participating in the AMIGOS/BCR Reciprocal Interlibrary Loan Agreement will keep statistics on their borrowing and lending activities between regions. Participants will be surveyed at the end of the pilot year. The survey results and statistics will be evaluated by each network to determine the feasibility of continuing the agreement.
The AMIGOS/BCR agreement doubles the access to materials for both Networks. Approximately 50 percent of all BCR libraries surveyed have agreed to participate in this pilot project.
AMIGOS Bibliographic Council, Inc., is a not-for-profit resource sharing Network serving members in nine states and Mexico.
The Bibliographic Center for Research is a non-profit, multi-state library cooperative serving the Rocky Mountains and Plains.
