Empire Shared Collection

Program Description

The Empire Shared Collection started in June 2014. It is a collaborative print depository in Western New York. No duplication of titles allowed within the repository. They consider the designated “last copy” for the members. Starting with the University at Buffalo Libraries Annex, plans exist to transition to a distributed model as space and use dictate.
