University of Notre Dame Top Ten Reasons Why Notre Dame Should Join the Big Ten from a library's perspective #10 Renew old ALA book cart drill rivalries #9 Borrow from our combined library collections of over
80,000,000 volumes! People mistakenly believe the conference was created to support college athletics. They are mistaken. The Big Ten was, and continues to be, all about interlibrary loan. #8 HathiTrust, baby #7 The addition of Notre Dame will shift
the geographic center of the conference from Chicago
to Hammond, Indiana. Who wouldn't want to meet in Hammond? #6 Committee on Institutional Cooperation
meetings = beer and pizza at Giordano's #5 Even with the awesome combined bargaining power of the Big Ten plus Notre Dame,

convince the rest of the Big Ten coaches to donate
to their libraries too!
