For more than eight and a half years, scientists using the two instruments on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Flight Telescope have gained significant experience with monitoring the high-energy Universe. The Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) and Large Area Telescope (LAT) have huge fields of view, and Fermi operates in a scanning mode, allowing the entire gamma-ray sky to be viewed about every three hours. Most of the Fermi results have involved multiwavelength or multimessenger cooperation. I will describe some of the cooperative programs and illustrate the processes with examples of scientific results emerging from them.
