The ALA Annual 2014 Print Archive Network (PAN) meeting on June 27 was followed by a session titled, “Looking to the Future of Shared Print,” co-sponsored by the Maine Shared Collections Strategy (MSCS) and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL). Building upon the experience of current shared print programs and initiatives, the session aimed to explore potential opportunities for shared print and how the shared print landscape will likely develop.

The California Digital Library’s (CDL) Emily Stambaugh, who serves as the CDL Shared Print Manager and the Program Manager of the Western Regional Trust (WEST), gave the closing keynote. Her presentation, “Moving Shared Print to the Network Level,” explored avenues to improve the discovery and delivery of shared print collections, opportunities for ongoing collection analysis and retention requirements, and a business model to support shared print at the network level.
