@Risk North Summary Report on Shared Print Preservation Programs

Organizations involved in a November 2017 @Risk North forum on shared print preservation have issued a summary report:
"As libraries witness increasing demand for online resources and dwindling circulation of print holdings, while simultaneously confronting budget and space pressures, it can be challenging to remain committed to sustaining academic libraries’ print collections. Cooperative approaches to acquiring, storing, preserving, and managing the reduction of print collections are gaining traction, employing a variety of models that seek to distribute the expense and responsibility while creating value for all parties." 
The groups involved were the Canadian Association of Research Libraries, the Center for Research Libraries, Library and Archives Canada and the University of Toronto Libraries.
