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.
SCELC is the first consortium in the Western United States to offer participation in a consortial shared print program, including OCLC/Sustainable Collection Services GreenGlass Group Collection Analysis, at a discount to Atla libraries. GreenGlass gives libraries a powerful data analysis tool to understand their collections in relation to other groups of libraries, and to model retention scenarios both at the local and group level.
