The Research Council Libraries & Information Consortium (RESCOLINC) is the focal point of the Library & Information Services of the UK Research Councils. Its aim is to obtain optimum information service supply benefits in support of researchers across the entire Research Council sector.
To provide the Research Councils with efficient and cost effective library information services for the benefit of scientific research
To provide a forum for libraries to communicate and collaborate with each other for the purpose of sharing resources and exchanging information
To provide a mechanism for libraries to effectively collaborate both internally and externally to the Research Councils
To enable libraries to enter into joint negotiations with publishers either directly or via the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) or other appropriate organisations
To hold formal meetings (twice a year) to discuss common issues and formulate actions to address matters arising
To maintain communications via the lis-rescolinc email discussion group or a similar mechanism
To provide a representative forum for librarians as a quorum or by other voting methods, to make joint decisions
