Council of Prairie and Pacific Libraries' Shared Print Archive Network (SPAN)
COPPUL Shared Print Archive Network (SPAN) is a shared print program that distributes retention for committed print titles among its 20 member libraries. In the first two phases, SPAN focused on low-use, low risk print journals. The goal for these phases was space reclamation. Members are from Western Canadian University libraries.
