The municipal libraries of Geneva and transborder and intercantonal collaboration

The municipal libraries of the city of Geneva collaborate in four transborder projects, all initiated by a political authority. Elected representatives and their services have to be involved in these initiatives, as their presence gives a special impetus to the setting up of the projects. The financing of these projects must be carefully examined and should not influence the services. For each one, the signing of an agreement of collaboration is essential, for that defines its framework. In order to ensure maximum exposure for the projects, great importance must be attached to the dissemination of information for the teams that will bring them to fruition.
