About the International Coalition of Library Consortia:

The International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC) first met as the
Consortium of Consortia (COC) in 1997. The Coalition is an informal group
comprising about sixty library consortia in North America, the United
Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and Australia. The Coalition serves
primarily higher education institutions by facilitating discussion among
consortia on issues of common interest. Throughout the year, ICOLC
conducts meetings dedicated to keeping its members informed about new
electronic information resources, pricing practices of electronic
providers and vendors, and other issues of importance to directors and
governing boards of consortia. The Coalition meets with members of the
information provider community to provide a forum for those providers to
discuss their offerings and to engage in dialog with Coalition members
about issues of mutual concern.

The ICOLC welcomes your interest, comments, and participation from
additional academic library consortia around the world.  The Statement of
Current Perspective is intended to engage electronic information providers
in a dialogue with the consortial library community.
