Collaboration at the National Library of Scotland

In this IFLA conference report, the author notes:
The development of shared services, particularly for back office services, is an increasingly important issue for library and information services. NLS has developed a deep and ground breaking collaboration with National Galleries Scotland which will incrementally merge back office services including HR, IS/IT and facilities management whilst further exploring areas such as retail and enterprise services. The first successful shared service is a joint fund raising body established in the United States.
He mentions collaboration in other parts of the report as well.
