Shared Print: Models, Policy & Process
Collection Development Models
Models for developing Shared Print Collections are described in detail in the planning framework "Developing a Planning Framework for UC Libraries Shared Print Collections" [DOC] Nancy Kushigian (Version 1.8, April 14, 2005)
- Prospective and retrospective printed serials which are also available online
- Retrospective serial publications that are not also available in digital format
- Prospective specialized monographic collections
- Ongoing cooperative collection development agreements that support collection distinctiveness
Variations on these models are possible.
Shared Print activities are informed and guided by policies and principles that are developed by all-campus groups and endorsed by the University Librarians:
- Persistent Deposits in UC Regional Library Facilities [PDF]
UC Systemwide Library Planning (Revised February 20, 2006)
- Shared Print in Place Policies (provisionally adopted, under review)
- Guidelines for Replacement of Persistent Deposits in RLFs and Shared Print in Place Monographs (November, 2011)
- WEST Disclosure policy for retrospective shared print journal archives (December, 2011). UC endorsement of substitutive approach (March 27, 2013).
Collection Development Process
Planning and decision-making for Shared Print collections is collaborative. Proposals for shared print collections are prepared by UC librarians and guided by the current Goals and Objectives for Shared Print Collections.
The Shared Print Manager develops frameworks, models and plans for shared print activities and resources within the UCs and with extramural partners. The Shared Print Manager also assists with proposal development, reviews proposals and presents them to the Collection Development Committee (CDC). CDC reviews and approves proposals.

- UC Bibliographer Group Chairs and Liaisons to the JSC and CDC [DOC]

Toolkits for Shared Print Agreements
Toolkits for Shared Print agreements facilitate the proposal submission process, formalize agreements, and establish a common set of practices and expectations for each collection development model.
