Inadequate funds and skills, poor access to databases and information technologies, and isolation of information workers in the National Agricultural Research System (NARS) provide strong reasons for networking among NARS and International Agricultural Research Centers (IARC) libraries. Pre-requisites for library and information networking include a clearly defined problem shared among the potential participants; evidence of strong self interest in the network; a commitment of resources such as personnel and facilities; representation in the network by trained personnel; and strong leadership. Planning for networks begins with a clearly defined and agreed set of objectives. Guidelines on choice of network participants, the kind of resources that are possible to be shared, the role that new information technologies could play, and the possible role of IARCs are discussed.
