To realize program objectives the sharing of personnel and expertise among JULAC member libraries is encouraged. Member libraries provide time for staff to participate in JULAC work.

The value of participation in consortial activity is demonstrated through recognition of staff by their libraries for involvement in the organization.
Staff of member libraries is provided with appropriate training and support for participation in collaborative undertakings.

Staff within individual libraries can be employed to support collaborative projects and is paid using fees collected from participating libraries, e.g. HKCAN.

JULAC member libraries recognize the value of having central staff support and seek support to make this possible. Such staff would be seen and would see themselves as employees of each JULAC institution.
