What Shared Print Means to You
In this session, you’ll hear from a panel of experts as they discuss the advantages of shared print for Atla libraries. Glenn Johnson-Grau, Head of Acquisitions & Collection Development at Loyola Marymount University and SCELC Shared Print Consultant will share his experience with the SCELC Shared Print program. Loyola Marymount University has used the GreenGlass software to showcase unique collections and used the program’s retention commitments as the basis for weeding projects. Gillian Harrison Cain, Director of Member Programs at Atla, will discuss how Atla members are uniquely situated to collaborate and share resources within the larger context of the SCELC program. Pete Zeimet, Product Specialist for GreenGlass Analytics at OCLC, will offer insight into the analytical tools available to shared print participants and how you can implement GreenGlass to make informed decisions about your collections.
Staff from OCLC, SCELC, and Atla will be available to answer any questions you might have about this program or shared print in general.
About the Shared Print Program
Throughout North America, library consortia are encouraging their members to pledge to retain and share a reasonable number of copies of scholarly monographs. These Shared Print programs protect against the loss of resources as pressure grows to reduce and repurpose space in library buildings.
The SCELC Shared Print program currently includes thirty-five academic institutions of all sizes, and the collective collection represents the full range of academic disciplines. As a group, SCELC Shared Print participants commit to retaining both unique items and widely held items. No more than 25% of the library’s collection is targeted through the analysis process for retention. Participating libraries pledge to share retained resources with each other and to retain targeted titles on behalf of the broader scholarly community for at least fifteen years. Titles not targeted for retention can be de-accessioned or moved to alternative housing, allowing librarians to redesign existing library space.
