In FY18-19, PASCAL staff and Common Collection Committee members collaborated with librarians at USC Columbia to explore the need for, and feasibility of, a collaborative shared print management strategy. An Andrew Mellon Foundation planning grant received by USC Columbia funded this work.
The resulting report identified an urgent statewide need for print management solutions at many PASCAL libraries and made recommendations for addressing this need. Recommendations included an expansion of USC Columbia’s high-density storage facility, use of PASCAL’s shared library services platform for collection analysis, and expansion of PASCAL’s existing print delivery program to include scan and delivery service in addition to monograph delivery.
The PASCAL Board will establish a task force to respond to these recommendations.
Shared Collections & Print Management Task Force Charge:
These recommendations will be based upon data presented in the report as well as additional information gathered by the task force.
The task force may draw on the Common Collections Committee, PASCAL staff, and member librarians for support as needed.
Composition of Task Force:
The task force, appointed by the board, will include at least five librarians representing PASCAL’s community of interest, a PASCAL staff member, and a board member.
