CONTesCOLTES: A successful experience of cultural and librarian cooperation
Already a few decades ago M. Nisbert described that the fundamental characteristic of cultural cooperation is based both on the agreement standards organisation as on objectives. It is true that it also refers to spontaneous, traditional and automatic cooperation in a multitude of cultural events, but the outlines of the cooperation subject is design, management and articulation from public or private foundations that are based on the coordination of activities among institutions, companies or Governments to develop joint marketing plans.
More and more issues of cooperation are in common use and possess a wider dissemination in the mass media and society in general.
The cooperative work between libraries, administrations, institutions... leads to a better and more effective communication, teamwork, reducing costs and, ultimately, the optimisation of resources, as well as the union's efforts to achieve a common goal.
Professionals who work in the cultural field (entertainers, cultural managers, librarians, etc.), often work together with other colleagues that geographically are not close and that perform the same tasks.
