AugsLuther or LutherBurg: Creating A Deep Radical Collaboration Between a College Library and A Seminary Library
Augsburg College and Luther Seminary are located less than four miles from one another, share a common history, and recently began sharing IT resources and instructional spaces. While Augsburg and Luther remain independent legal entities, in early 2016 our presidents challenged leaders on both campuses to explore opportunities for a strategic alliance.

The library directors and staff members collaborated to create a shared vision that would leverage the alliance to achieve enhanced services and programs, greater innovation, and cost-effectiveness.

This two-person panel will detail key points of our planning process, differences between college and seminary libraries, various questions/problems raised along the way, and our initial work of implementation.
