This is the fifth of seven articles to address the problem of what higher education can do to meet the space needs of new programs and wider constituency, without resorting to new building. One way to meet space needs is for two or more institutions to establish a cooperative effort that makes better use of existing facilities. This effort can range from administrative acts such as cross-registration, a common calendar, joint purchasing and storage, and library cooperation, to ambitious collaboration in academic, athletic and other programs. Not uncommon are joint efforts between academic and non-academic groups. The impact such efforts have on space use is outlined in this article, along with examples. A larger selection of over sixty case studies on cooperation is on hand at Eduational Facilities Laboratories. These may be obtained on request from EFL, 477 Madison Avenue, New York, N.Y., 10022. The information of these articles and for the complementary case studies, compiled for EFL by Jane Lord and Stephen A. Kliment, resulted from a project jointly funded by the Office of Experimental Schools of the National Institute of Education (U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare), and by Educational Facilities Laboratories.
