Abstract
The widespread adoption of Internet protocols has made it easier for libraries to link together in consortia and pool their resources effectively. Describes three Web sites which provide information of interest to librarians looking to form a consortium. The Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries' (CARL) homepage provides a link to a brief history of the consortium, its strategic plan and its publications. The World wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international industry consortium, founded in October 1994 to develop common protocols that will promote the evolution of the Web and guarantee its interoperability. W3C provides information about the Web for developers and users. The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) is a project committed to making the Web accessible to people with disabilities and is of interest to librarians since it fits their own mission of filling ht einformation needs of all users
