Shared Print Archiving Policies

The Alliance has developed a core set of policies and principles for the Alliance Shared Print Trust. This will allow libraries to work together in areas such as weeding and storage. By working together at the regional and national level, libraries will be better positioned to manage their large print collections as they move into the digital age.

The initial set of policies were approved in May 2015 and Alliance libraries have begun the process of signing the general MOU framework during the summer of 2015. The signed versions have been included in the secure section of this Website.

Policies and MOUs from Selected Sites

Polices, MOUs and other interesting material for other library consortia were helpful in developing a local set of rules.
