Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) Shared Print Journal Retention Program

Program Description

The Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) Shared Print Journal Retention Program is a subset of Scholars Trust, a collaborative organization that brings together consortia that wish to share the effort of the long term retention of and access to print materials held by academic libraries in support of learning and scholarship. Scholars Trust was founded in 2013 by ASERL and the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC) to combine the contents of their respective shared print journal collections under a single retention and access agreement that provides assurance that the journals designated under the agreement are retained and accessible for research purposes as long as the need reasonably exists. Also participating in the program is the FLorida Academic REpository (FLARE), a statewide shared collection of low use print materials from academic libraries in Florida and the Triangle Research Libraries Network (TRLN), a collaborative shared print project with Duke University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
