Abstract
A literature search revealed little evidence of UK public library involvement in bibliographic networks. Public library collections include a wealth of sound recordings, photographs, local history information and community and business information services. Access to their catalogues would benefit academic, special and other public libraries. Cooperative purchasing, particularly of journals, is another potential benefit of developing networks. network expansion and the public library's role in it will be dependent on costs. Greater awareness among senior public librarians is necessary to promote the development of networks
