Partnerships and collaboration

The Consortium is a member of the International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC) an informal group currently comprising approximately 200 library consortia from around the world. ICOLC supports participating consortia by facilitating discussion on issues of common interest.

As a member of COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) the NSLA Consortium is part of an international initiative serving librarians, publishers and intermediaries by setting standards that facilitate the recording and reporting of online usage statistics in a consistent, credible and compatible way.

While a member of NSLA the National Library of New Zealand is not a member of the Consortium. The National Library of New Zealand is the lead agency of EPIC (Electronic Purchasing in Collaboration), New Zealand’s national consortium.

The NSLA Consortium collaborates with EPIC and the CAUL Electronic Information Resources Consortium on areas of mutual interest.
