Progam MOU

In 2009 the University of Iowa, Iowa State, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison partnered to create a Distributed Print Repository. Through this partnership, commonly held materials which had complete electronic duplication were identified. From those titles, one partner library has committed to retain a single copy of the print versions of the materials for a minimum of 25 years, which thereby enables the partner libraries to withdraw their copies and rely collectively on the shared repository copy (along with local electronic access).
