The CNI Executive Roundtable on library and information technology (IT) partnerships with campus museums and archives (December 2016) reported on numerous opportunities for collaboration and a number of barriers to realizing them. "One participant noted that he would like to better understand how to move people from talking about collaboration to doing it."

In this session, Yale University will share how its libraries, museums, and IT services moved from talking to action. Presenters will share their diverse organizational viewpoints into the initiative, the mission commonalities identified as opportunities, and the organizational differences that appropriately require diverse departmental approaches. They will provide insight into the process that led to convergence on shared services for digital preservation and digital asset management as well as adoption of the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) as a university standard. Mechanisms put in place to sustain, guide, and optimize this collaboration over time will be covered, including a funding model, shared funding of staff positions, governance structures, and a shared services sustainability model. The presenters will pose questions to participants to encourage a sharing of collaboration experiences and the steps taken to advance from talking to action in library, museum, and IT collaboration.
