Overall, the goal of this volume is to begin to fill the gap in thinking about the power of academic library consortia advocacy that is neither legislative nor government policy directed, providing a sampling review of the current landscape of consortia advocacy work, a consortium and other groups’ advocacy frameworks, a workshop curriculum which may be used to develop an advocacy plan, and thoughts for the future. There is strength in a consortium voice. It provides the opportunity to lead together under a unified plan. This does not mean that individual libraries abdicate their contribution and role in grassroots advocacy, but rather reinforces the concept that each library contributes to the consistent messaging to influence and persuade for the agreed-upon goals of the consortium.
