Parallel Session 4A (Physical library, learning spaces) Shared Print Monographs: Analysis and Action

Since 2011, Sustainable Collection Services (SCS) has worked with academic libraries to develop services and tools that provide rich context for decisions to retain, store, or withdraw specific items. Increasingly, consortia and other groups are collaborating, using tools such as the GreenGlass group features to model and allocate retention commitments, and to create a monographs safety net, which enables other group members to withdraw surplus copies.

Join us as we discuss techniques developed and lessons learned from projects with EAST (Eastern Academic Scholars’ Trust), Michigan Shared Print Initiative, Academic Libraries of Indiana, Central Iowa Collaborative Collections Initiative, Maine Shared Collections, and others.
