The Eastern Academic Scholars’ Trust (EAST) is a shared print initiative of 100 plus member institutions in 15 states from Maine to Florida. EAST member libraries commit to retain agreed upon titles in their local collection and make those titles available to other EAST members. EAST member libraries have collectively made retention commitments to over 10 million monographs. A subset of EAST members (32 libraries) has committed to retaining approximately 37,000 journal holdings. The criteria for which serial titles were committed can be found on the EAST website. EAST is a member of both the Partnership for Shared Book Collections and Rosemont Shared Print Alliance.
