Brian Lavoie and Constance Malpas of the OCLC Research will give a presentation on their activities on Print Management at Mega Scale and the theme of the library as a systemwide resource. They will provide some context with a general description of the System-wide Organization research portfolio, then move into discussion of the “Print Management at ‘Mega-Scale’” report, focusing in particular on what they are calling the “extra-regional” print collection (i.e., library collections that fall outside the 12 major North American mega-regions). A fair number of NITLE Network members are located in that extra-regional zone; this seminar provides a useful opportunity to engage in a dialogue about how and where small research-oriented institutions fit in the library (and higher-education) system as a whole. We will also discuss what part of the North American print book collection is held by NITLE Network members and continue considering what these will mean for the future of the liberal arts college library and NITLE Shared LibrariesTM.

    • NITLE Collections in a Mega-regional frameworkPrint Management:Future Strategies The world’s libraries. Connected.
    • Background: The future of print collection management • Opportunity cost: • Declining use of print collections (OCLC/Ohio Link study); ever- expanding array of digital alternatives • Resources supporting print needed for new service priorities • Reduce cost of print collections while leveraging more value from legacy print investment. Contours of a solution? • Print resource as a shared asset managed cooperatively • Regions are attractive scale for this cooperation • OCLC Research: “Cloud-Sourcing Research Collections” • ARL libraries: growing overlap with Hathi Trust, most of which widely held • Significant opportunity for collaboration in print management The world’s libraries. Connected.
    • NITLE Collections in a Mega-regional frameworkPrint Managementat “Mega-scale” The world’s libraries. Connected.
    • Print Management at “Mega-Scale” • OCLC Research report: characteristics and implications of a North American network of regional shared print book collections • Many current discussions around cooperative shared print organized at regional scale • Regional framework operationalized using mega- region concept • Not prescriptive: one model among many The world’s libraries. Connected. www.oclc.org/research/publications/library/2012/2012-05.pdf

    • Liberal arts college libraries in perspective Individual NITLE library collections are comparatively small and growing relatively s l o w l y some appear to be shrinking Much of the content held in NITLE libraries is widely duplicated in other libraries and shared digital repositories How can NITLE members leverage collective library investment? What is the role of cooperative infrastructure in the future of liberal arts college libraries? The world’s libraries. Connected.

    • NITLE Libraries as a collective resource: print books 122 NITLE libraries (holding symbols) 9,233,838 print book titles in NITLE collective collection Represents 20% of print book titles in North America 38,577,725 print book holdings in NITLE libraries Average NITLE holdings per print book title: <5 Scope and scale insufficient to secure long-term preservation of collective resource The world’s libraries. Connected.
    • Scale matters: assessing print preservation risks “rareness is common” >80% of print books in NITLE collective collection are held by fewer than 5 libraries in the groupN = 9.23M titles (manifestations) The world’s libraries. Connected. OCLC Research, 2013
    • Scale matters: assessing print preservation risks >80% of print books in NITLE collective collection are held by fewer than 5 libraries in group ~15% of print books in NITLE collective collection are held by fewer than 5 libraries in WorldCatN = 9.23M titles (manifestations) The world’s libraries.

    • Bos-Wash Largest collection by scope (titles) Largest collection by size (holdings) Fragmented cooperative infrastructureThe world’s libraries. Connected. OCLC Research, 2013
    • Print Books in Bos-Wash Libraries Bos-Wash Regional print book collection • 26,105,425 discrete titles • 21,160,220 discrete works • 1.23 manifestations per work on average • 191,574,175 holdings in Bos-Wash libraries • 7.34 holdings per title on average • Median age: 34 (i.e. published 1977)= 57% of titles (22% of holdings) in North American print book collection including more than 8M titles unique to Bos-Wash The world’s libraries. Connected. OCLC Research, 2013
    • „Density‟ of print book holdings in Bos-Wash Bos-Wash Majority of titles held by <5 libraries in region Holding Libraries in Bos-Wash > 99 in region 25 to 99 in region 10 to 24 in region 5 to 9 in region <5 in region 75%N = 26.1M titles 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% The world’s libraries. Connected. OCLC Research, 2013
    • In sum: supply-side view of regional resource EVIDENCE OPINION • Bos-Wash print book collection A preservation strategy that is the largest regional recognizes inter-regional collection in North America dependencies will maximize benefit • Bos-Wash library holdings Need to coordinate regional provide coverage for nearly management plan with other North 60% of print book titles in American partners to ensure North America coverage Long-term preservation of the Bos-Wash print book resource should be viewed as a collective preservation priority Bos-Wash resource duplicates 93% of print books in NITLE libraries The world’s libraries. Connected.

Connected. OCLC Research, 2013
    • In sum: institutional stewardship EVIDENCE OPINION • Nearly 3/4s of the Bos-Wash As mid-tier HEI seek to adapt to print book collection is held by competitive e-learning academic libraries environment, local investment in print management is likely to decline; • Many are non-ARL institutions external cooperative or commercial with limited preservation strategies will be increasingly capacity or mandate attractive to academic administrators Unrealistic to imagine that a handful of ARL institutions can assume stewardship responsibility for regional print book resource NITLE libraries have an important role to play The world’s libraries. Connected.
    • Mega-regional stewardship: cooperative infrastructure 9,233,838 print book titles in NITLE collective collection Represents 20% of print book titles in North America 33% of print book titles in Bos-Wash 59% of print book titles in Cascadia 52% of print book titles in Char-lanta The world’s libraries. Connected. OCLC Research, 2013
    • Regional stewardship: cooperative infrastructure Bos-Wash ~30% of NITLE members are located in the Bos-Wash mega-region represents <1% of libraries in mega-region accounts for 24% of print book titles (9% of holdings) in region i.e., a monographic preservation program among 40 NITLE libraries would secure nearly a quarter of the regional print book resource … alone holds 15% of titles in the Bos-Wash mega-region – but is it solely responsible for stewardship of this resource?Cooperative infrastructure enables broader (re)distribution of stewardship The world’s libraries. Connected. OCLC Research, 2013
    • Sourcing and scaling: where does NITLE fit? What? Collectively accounts for 20% of North American print book resource Who? Composed primarily of institutions with limited preservation capacity How? Relatively limited duplication within NITLE membershipMembership distributed across North America Where? concentrated in existing mega-regionsOptimal scale of collaboration will depend on relative efficiency gains:e.g. 30% of membership provides 24% coverage of Bos-Wash print books 100% of membership provides 33% coverage of same collectionWhy? NITLE is part of a larger, interdependent eco-system The world’s libraries. Connected.
    • Shared Print increasingly organized at regional scale Members participating in several regional efforts Affirms collective imperative for long-term preservation and access The world’s libraries. Connected.
    • In conclusion• Liberal arts college libraries have a shared interest in long- term preservation of print book collections• Collectively, these institutions hold a significant part of the national print book resource• Stewardship efforts that leverage (mega-) regional infrastructure and inter-regional synergies will maximize efficient redistribution of preservation costs and benefits• NITLE can provide a voice for liberal arts college libraries in regional and national planning efforts by increasing awareness of distinctive value of its „shared library‟ The world’s libraries.
