The LIS Research Coalition welcomes the Committee on Library Co-operation in Ireland (COLICO) as a new associate member.

COLICO functions to optimise the collective value of the combined resources of Irish libraries for their clienteles. The committee was established in 1977 and since 1994 has been the formal advisory body on library co-operation to An Chomhairle Leabharlanna, and the Library and Information Services Council, Northern Ireland (LISC NI). Further information can be found on COLICO’s web site. The news of COLICO’s involvement with the LIS Research Coalition has already been posted to the LISC NI blog.

Linda Houston, Director of LISC NI, will serve as COLICO’s representative for the Coalition.
