ByPhyllis L. Erdogan Bulent Karasozen

The Turkish academic library community entered a new era with the creation in May 2001 of the Anatolian University Libraries Consortium. Known by its Turkish acronym, ANKOS, the consortium’s development has been documented in an article written by two members of its steering committee.1 In that article is to be found a complete list of licensed databases since the first ANKOS contracts in 2002, including those signed for 2004. The present article will bring the reader up to date on ANKOS work for 2005.
