The amount of information sources available through both printed and electronic media are ever increasing. Even libraries with considerable collection development budgets are having difficulties in coping with this increase. Yet with the development of new technologies, the possibilities of innovative interlibrary cooperation projects emerge: libraries combining their efforts through various consortia are trying to get access to electronic information sources more economically. In this paper, we briefly review the Turkish university library budgets, summarize the current developments in interlibrary cooperation and concentrate on efforts to form a university library consortium in Turkey to provide consortial access to electronic information sources and services. We discuss some of the causes which are presumably delaying the establishment of such a consortium.
