Eastern Academic Scholars’ Trust (EAST)
The Eastern Academic Scholars’ Trust (EAST) is a shared print initiative of 48 partner libraries in the Eastern United States. In the fall of 2014, the Boston Library Consortium (BLC) agreed to act as the host institution for the EAST project with responsibility for staffing, fiscal oversight, and management of grant proposals and awards. In parallel with the collection analysis and development of retention commitments, the EAST libraries have developed policies that will govern the membership and be incorporated into the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which is to be signed by all EAST members.
