Summary/Abstract: The article presents the development of the concept of a library cooperation in the world and in Bulgaria, from its inception until today. Special attention is paid to the creation of the first library consortium for cooperative database subscription – Bulgarian Information Consortium. Its 20-year history and main aspects of activity, applied governance modes and achieved results are tracked. The conclusion about the possible, albeit difficult to achieve, success of private initiatives for a library cooperative is substantiated.
