University of Iowa/Iowa State/UW-Madison Distributed Print Repository
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).
Archive Type: Print
Format Archived: Journals
Selection: The initial focus of the Repository is on printed backfiles of journals from the publishers Institutes of Physics, American Chemical Society and Annual Reviews.
Retention Period: 25 years
Ownership: Original owner
