Public Libraries, Archives and Museums: Trends in Collaboration and Cooperation

I’ll be heading to IFLA in Italy and the Web 2.0 pre-conference too next week.
And here’s a tinely report IFLA just released (with loads of Canadian and international involvement):
Public Libraries, Archives and Museums: Trends in Collaboration and Cooperation
Executive Summary

“This report examines the recent trends in collaboration and cooperation
between public libraries, archives and museums. In many cases, the shared
or similar missions of the institutions reviewed make them ideal partners in
collaborative ventures. Different types of collaborative projects are examined,
including exhibits, community programs, digital resources and joint-use
facilities. Examples come from Canada, the United States and the United
Kingdom (UK), as well as from Russia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany,
Italy, Spain, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The report concludes
with a guide to collaborations, including examples of best practices in the field,
a guide to a successful collaboration, a discussion of the benefit and risks of
collaboration, and a list of resources consulted.”
