Shared Print Repository

Introduction

High-density book storage

As part of their mutual commitment to efficient, ongoing access to scholarly information resources, library directors from Big Ten Academic Alliance member universities agreed in July 2011 to fund a shared collection of print journal backfile volumes. 

The first phase of this initiative is now underway, with plans for securing some 250,000 volumes over the next five years in a state-of-the-art storage facility located at Indiana University. 

The Winter 2017 Update is available here.
