In 2011 Kaiti Laskaridou Library signed a cooperation agreement with the Library of Eugenides Foundation and the Library of the University of the Aegean; the agreement was born out of the three libraries’ intention to combine their collections on shipping and all matters relating to maritime transport.
This agreement formalized and extended the existing collaboration of the libraries, in order to
- collaborate for the acquisition of new book titles,
- reduce expenses and simultaneously increase the readability of the maritime collections of the three libraries and
- maximize their recognition as important collections in subjects of maritime transport.
This cooperation enables researchers to access the largest bibliography on shipping and maritime transport possible. After searching the libraries’ catalogues, they can contact the nearest one and ask for the desired titles. Via the interlibrary loan service, the library will request to borrow the needed materials.
Our aim is to further develop our maritime bibliography by collaborating with as many collections and libraries as possible.
