Members List

Progam MOU

The PDPA builds on work initiated in 2008 in which various PALCI members made commitments to retain selected print journal collections for the PALCI membership. The current goal of the program is to preserve, retain and enable access and delivery to a distributed print collection for the benefit of PALCI members, thereby allowing the de-accession of individual member print holdings, where possible. The PDPA is led by a Steering Committee and also has various project teams working on shared print for journals, reference sets, and other materials.
