Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Preservation in the Age of Shared Print and Withdrawal Projects

Zachary Maiorana, Ian Bogus, Mary Miller, Jacob Nadal, Katie Risseeuw, Jennifer Hain Teper

Abstract

This paper’s review of current issues in shared print retention and preservation identifies such shared issues as the cataloging and validation, retention and withdrawal of holdings, loss rates, current condition of holdings, recommendations for the number of copies to retain, and storage environments. Library institutions require a communitywide dialogue assessing practical retention concerns. We hope that our recommendations and discussion will serve as a call to action for further study and greater interest in strong cooperation at both institutional and repository levels, including collaborative action for multiple levels of collection assessments.
