The Collaborative Collections project group manages The Australian Libraries Collaborative Collection (TALCC). This agreement between all NSLA libraries in Australia enables the redistribution of low-use materials based upon subject strengths, to avoid duplication. The project aims to build on specialist collections, assemble complete runs of journals, release storage space, and enhance opportunities for collecting state heritage material.
