Creating a Local Print Repository for State Consortium Online Purchases
The Serials Librarian
A group of eleven public university libraries, comprising the Council of State University Libraries consortium, created an experimental archive to retain one print copy of online journals for use of consortium members. The article addresses the initial concerns, development of the project, methods used, and concerns for the future. The article raises the question of whether libraries need to archive print backups for online materials as well as who should do the archiving and to what extent.
