The Importance of Outreach in Shared Print Projects

Shared print projects can often be seen from the library perspective as a win-win proposition. They allow libraries to free up limited space for new uses or growing collections, while ensuring continued access to print content for users. Unfortunately, faculty and other stakeholders sometimes see the removal of materials from libraries very differently.

In this session we will explore concerns often raised by campus constituencies related to shared print projects. We will also present two case studies that examine how a large research university participating in multiple journal-based shared print projects and a mid-sized private university participating in a monograph-based shared print project reached out to their campuses to educate them, gather feedback and develop buy-in.

Persons attending this session will be able to:
• articulate common concerns raised about shared print projects
• describe different approaches to engage campus constituencies and gather feedback related to shared print projects.

Attendees will also have an opportunity to discuss challenges at their local institutions and share how they have successfully engaged faculty and other stakeholders in discussions surrounding the management of legacy collections.
