Partnership for Shared Book Collections – Save the Date: Webinar: Best Practices for Shared Print Programs | Wednesday, June 3rd at 1pm
This will be the first official Partnership event since UC Libraries Shared Print Program joined the federation. The coordination and development of best practices for shared print is an opportunity to align existing programs, pave a smooth way for new programs, and better ensure consistent, legible management of our collective collections. Eight best practices have already been posted on the Partnership’s website for community input. Links are available to each below. On June 3rd, the conveners of the Best Practices Working Group in the Partnership will be hosting a webinar to discuss them.
