 Developing Print Repositories: Models for Shared Preservation and Access
Materials from the four private colleges in the consortium (Amherst, Mt. Holyoke, Hampshire, and Smith) that are placed at the repository become the property of Five Colleges, Inc., with one exception: Amherst maintains a separate collection of its own materials at the facility.
Ownership aside, the experience of the Five Colleges and others suggests that the retention of redundant materials by individual libraries can be far less costly when there is a shared "active" copy that is cooperatively managed for long-term retention and accessibility.
The Five Colleges consortium identifies and retains the best copy of titles from among the member libraries' holdings; the second and third copies are returned to owning libraries for disposition as they see fit.

 Budget Travel Online - Amherst, Northampton, & South Hadley, Central Massachusetts
The "Five College" area of central Massachusetts combines the buzz of one of America's most stimulating intellectual and artistic centers with the serenity of New England's wooded hills and a genteel aura of yesteryear.
Fortunately, the intellectual and cultural offerings at the five colleges are scheduled mostly during the week, so you can avoid the hassle of getting (and paying double for) weekend reservations and waiting outside crowded restaurants.
The town's crown jewel, however, is Smith College, founded in 1875 as one of the first institutions for young women to provide an education that was equal in every way to the best offered to young men.

 Colonial Colleges: The First Five
Although founded primarily to teach divinity and heavily influenced by the Puritans, Harvard (and other early colleges) were not one-denominational, nor were they used strictly as seminaries (although, at least in early years, that was their primary objective).
The college, located in Newetowne (to be named Cambridge in 1638), was named after John Harvard, who bequeathed his entire library and half of his estate to the fledgling school.
During his tutelage, the college established three buildings, a library, and obtained a formal charter granted by the Massachusetts General Court in 1650, which stated that the principle of Harvard was "the advancement of all good literature, arts and sciences' and the education of English and Indian Youth 'in knowledge: and godliness'" (Cremin, 213).
