In 2015 Abilene Christian University started an extension campus in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with fully online doctoral and master's programs being offered and support requested from the Abilene campus with exisiting resources and no requests for additional funding. This poster discusses the story of how the Library navigated the process of leveraging our materials budget to develop a partnership with our extension campus to create a blended funding model with formalized roles and documenting common actions that led to increased support for the library from the university and greater accountability for our resources and services to distance learning students.
