(2) The board may participate in the formation and maintenance of a nonprofit-sharing
corporation sponsored by participating colleges, universities, and libraries for the
purpose of providing and operating a central library depository at a location in a
midwestern state for the storage of little used books and other library and research
materials of participating institutions, and which corporation may also perform any
other functions for the benefit of participating institutions, including correlating
library catalogs of the participating institutions, coordinating and planning the
purchasing by each institution of costly or infrequently used books and research materials
in order to avoid unnecessary duplication, and facilitating the loaning of library

and materials deposited with such corporation for storage or loaned to other participating

the construction of buildings and additions to buildings and the purchase of equipment
for the purpose of providing such facilities shall be limited to funds appropriated
under s. 20.245.
