OCLC Research, the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) and The Ohio State University Libraries hosted this symposium 27-28 March 2014 at the OCLC Conference Center in Dublin, Ohio to broaden community conversation about regional print management strategies. Library managers, collection development officers, consortium administrators and others interested in shared print were invited and encouraged to attend. OhioLINK was also proud to support and participate in this regional research collaboration.

During the symposium, in-person and online attendees heard from library leaders who are actively implementing shared print arrangements at a variety of scales, from small consortia to state and region-wide initiatives. Key findings from an OCLC Research and Ohio State University Library analysis of CIC print books were also shared and used to anchor discussions about the opportunities for cooperative management of monographic collections. This investigation considered academic collections from three different perspectives: as an institutional resource, as a shared consortial resource, and as part of a loosely coordinated larger system of libraries. Findings from the study were published in the OCLC Research report, Right-scaling Stewardship: A Multi-scale Perspective on Cooperative Print Management.
