Program Description

The goals for this collaborative project are to ensure access to commonly held print journal titles, to allow libraries to withdraw material re-purpose space and share the responsibility of storing print titles at individual institutions instead of requiring a centralized storage facility. Both a light and dark archive are being assembled. See press release with Penn state for dark archive,
