Academic Libraries of Indiana (ALI): ALI-PALNI Shared Print Project
In 2013, 36 Indiana academic libraries came together to take part in the ALI/PALNI Shared Print Project. By sharing their resources, the libraries were able to engage Sustainable Collection Services to analyze the circulating print monographs of each library individually and as a whole. The Project has both short-term and long-term goals. In the short-term, libraries are able to make data-driven decisions about weeding their collections and reclaim space for student use. As we look to the future, the Project can also be the foundation for a shared collection mindset and allow greater cooperative collection development.
