Shared Print Monographs: Making It Work
8:30 am to 4:00 pm, US/Central
To date, shared print programs have focused largely on journals. Monographs pose a different challenge, and require new approaches. Information from circulation and holdings records can help libraries share responsibility for print collections, while enabling careful drawdown of surplus copies and protection of the scholarly record.
This preconference will highlight the experiences of several groups: Michigan Shared Print Initiative, Connect New York, Maine Shared Collection Strategy, the California State University system, and others.
