New Report: "RLG Partnership Shared Print Collections Working Group Shared Policy Review Report"
The report also summarizes the findings of a systematic review of policy documents governing single, shared and last copy print collections in a variety of national contexts and draws conclusions about the implications of these policies for cooperative print management. In addition, it characterizes the core policy dimensions as they relate to specific library operations, highlights areas where community consensus has been achieved, and identifies gaps in current policy frameworks that might prevent joint preservation initiatives to achieve network scale.
The RLG Partnership Shared Print Working Group, led by Program Officer Constance Malpas, compiled, analyzed and compared the various documents and formulated the final recommendations.
