Abstract: "Models of Cooperation in U.S., Latin American and Caribbean Libraries" considers library cooperation in the context of "The Americas," a name given to the geographic, political and cultural entities which constitute the American continents. One of the main characteristics that identifies this region is the dichotomy between the developed, mainly Anglophone North and the countries located south of the US-Mexican border, known collectively as Latin America. The Caribbean region, although it maintains its own identity, is very often lumped into the Latin American context. The collection of papers presented in this volume does not try to discuss each and every one of the existing cooperative projects in the American region. Many of the papers describe cooperative experiences and projects in the Caribbean region, while others are more theoretical in content and broader in geographic coverage. It has been the intention of authors and editor alike, to compile a practical document that can be used for information as well as for discussion.
