Duplication rates have remained stable since the mid 1970s. Figure 2. Circulation activity varies by subject; shelf-status (reserves; closed stacks) may be a factor.

  20. 20. Managing the Collective Collection Harmonizing Digitization While the mass digitization partnerships have focused largely on published works, our approaches to special collections will have to evolve to make a significant contribution. RLG Programs Living the Future7 – May 2, 2008

Modeling New Service Infrastructures Contribute to the development of a Registry of Copyright Evidence The work undertaken by RLG Partner institutions for this project was an early step in contributing to the development of the Registry of Copyright Evidence. This registry will ultimately lead to the creation of a consistent, accepted process for libraries, archives and museums to gain permission to provide access to high-risk or special collection materials.
