Shared Print Repository - Introduction

Shared Print Repository

Introduction

High-density book storage

As part of their mutual commitment to efficient, ongoing access to scholarly information resources, library directors from CIC member universities agreed in July 2011 to fund a shared collection of print journal backfile volumes. 

The first phase of this initiative is now underway, with plans for securing some 250,000 volumes over the next five years in a state-of-the-art storage facility located at Indiana University. 

The Summer 2014 Update is available here.
