Space in libraries is an increasingly valuable commodity. To respond to
this problem librarians are looking for cost-effective solutions to store
and provide access to large, legacy print collections. Shared print
repositories have emerged as one possible solution, even as other print
preservation solutions continue to emerge within the library community.

During this e-forum, we hope to stimulate discussion on the many of the
different issues surrounding print archiving with an emphasis on shared
print repositories.

We hope to address as many of these Topics as we can during the e-forum:

– What is a shared print repository?
– What should you look for in a shared print archiving agreement?
– How are libraries selecting material for shared print collections?
– Useful workflows and logistics for librarians involved in shared print
– What Metadata is involved in shared print programs?
– What Access restrictions are available for shared print programs?
– How is Resource sharing addressed in shared print programs?
– What does Participation in a national shared print network look like?
– What are some of the other models for Print Preservation?

Please join us for what we hope will be a lively discussion on this
emerging trend!

of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The
e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email
address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate
with other participants through an email discussion. Most e-forums last two
