On Thursday, May 18, Dan Greenstein, Associate Vice Provost and University Librarian for the CDL, gave a presentation at the UC Board of Regents meeting about the accomplishments the UC libraries and their staffs have achieved through innovation and collaboration.

Examples of the innovative programs that have helped UC avoid costs while providing better access to growing amounts of information include: the shared digital collection, one of the largest in the world; the digital preservation repository, one of the nation’s first; and the eScholarship Repository, which has had more than 3 million downloads of reports, working papers, and articles authored by UC faculty.
