Educause Review | Browsing Library Collections

Educause Review | Browsing Library Collections: From the Shelf to the Online Catalog
The problem: Of making many books there is no end; library buildings are costly; and not many campuses have real estate to spare for the purpose of housing yet more printed books in their general libraries. The solutions: Put lesser-used printed materials in less-costly storage facilities; or engage in cooperative archiving agreements that retain one copy of a title in one of the partner's active stacks so that the other partners may divest of their copy.
