Open Access Graduate Research Paper
A case study was conducted at the Bettendorf Public Library to determine how and why the public library cooperates with the area public schools. Interviews with the public library staff and school media specialists were conducted. Documentation relating to the cooperation was gathered and examined. Lastly, observations were conducted. The relevant data were then compiled and examined for patterns. The data collected show cooperation has occurred with one institution providing the leadership and funds while both institutions benefit. The patterns also indicated that the administrators for both institutions indicate support for the cooperation and that the purpose of the cooperation is to enhance the public library's service to students of the Bettendorf area.
