Some have been very successful and are still ongoing; others have run their course once initial needs were met or the primary leaders retired or moved to other libraries. Few articles published on these partnerships discuss the successes and pitfalls from the perspective of the library administrator. In this article, the authors describe best practices from the point of library administration and how to develop a relationship that is long-lasting and successful.
