They are particularly afraid of larger consortia; this makes managing collections easier and ultimately might mean fewer copies ordered. You see, no longer need every branch order at least one token copy of a must-have book, a few copies for the whole state (and many copies for popular books) would be sufficient. Can't have that, can we?
