Consortial Abbreviation: 
CSUC
Brief Description: 

The CBUC (nowadays a unit of the CSUC) was set up in late 1996 and its mission is to improve library services through cooperation. The first activity of the CBUC was to create the Union Catalogue of the Universities of Catalonia (CCUC). Shortly afterwards the Consortium considered that it would be feasible and beneficial to organize an interlibrary loan program. The positive results of these two initial programs led the Consortium to venture into new activities (joint purchases of equipment, training, benchmarking...), and to draw up of the project for the Digital Library of Catalonia. Nowadays CSUC delivers cooperative library services to 20 members, mainly Catalan public universities.
