Understanding the Collective Collection: Towards a System-wide Perspective on Library Print Collections
This report brings together the important work that OCLC Research has done for the community in providing a quantitative, analytic, system-wide view of library collections. This work has established an evidence base that has encouraged libraries to begin the shift from local provisioning of library collections and services to increased reliance on cooperative infrastructure, collective collections, shared technology platforms, and "above-the-institution" management strategies.
