2CUL partnership expands Southeast Asian Studies collaboration (USA)

Expert librarians from Cornell University Library in the field of Southeast Asian Studies will extend their services and collections to the entire academic community at Columbia University. Thanks to the innovative 2CUL partnership between the institutions, faculty, students and staff at both universities will be able to borrow books and other materials in an expedited manner from either library. Through this new formal arrangement, Cornell's two Southeast Asia librarians will work with faculty and students at Columbia, offering in-depth reference services. They will also work directly with Columbia's librarians, providing advice on collection development and selecting materials. Cornell will provide improved access to materials in multiple languages, including Burmese, Filipino, Indonesian, Khmer, Lao, Malaysian, Tagalog, Thai and Vietnamese. Columbia will continue to maintain and enhance its English language resource collection. This new agreement builds upon the success of 2CUL's first resource-sharing agreement: collaborative collection development and research help in Slavic and East European Studies, which was implemented in fall 2010
