In June 1993, Dorothy Kijanka, Director of the Ryan Matura Library at Sacred Heart University, convened a group of library directors with the hope of forming a consortium, loosely modeled on WALDO, the Westchester Academic Library Directors Organization. Like the Westchester group, the envisioned Connecticut consortium would explore avenues of interlibrary cooperation, jointly seek grant funding, and serve as a forum for the discussion of mutual concerns.
The purpose of the Council, as stated in the by-laws, are
• to improve services and access to resources through cooperation
• to benefit economically by bargaining/purchasing/applying for grants collectively
• to serve as a means of communication among Connecticut academic library directors to make recommendations and represent the point of view of Connecticut academic library directors to any agency affecting their library service.
Membership in the group is open to the directors of all Connecticut academic libraries, regardless of the institution's governance, source of funding, or constituency.
The collection consists of correspondence, announcements, agendas and minutes of meetings. Annual reports of the Council's activities began in 1994 and continue through 1998. The organization is still in existence and periodic transfers of similar materials are expected.
