Unique Library Partnerships: A Comparative Case Study

by Murphy, Kate E.

Abstract (Summary)
This study describes interviews of staff members at two library-nonprofit collaborative institutions. The comparative case study of Charlotte’s ImaginOn and Greensboro’s Hemphill Branch Library was conducted to determine if there were common problems, solutions, and recommendations related to unique library partnerships.

Five employees of each library were questioned on a variety of elements regarding the development and operation of either ImaginOn or Hemphill. Results show the large differences between the two entities, but also suggest potential recommendations for integrated partnerships between libraries and nonprofit organizations.
