Collection Management@Emory: Preservation Initiatives (Print and Digital)

Digital Content Initiatives

Emory has now jointed membership as well in Portico, an arm of Ithaka, which preserves digital content (journals, ebooks, and digital collections).  

Print Initiatives

Woodruff Library is a participant in ASERL’s Cooperative Journal Retention Program, now known as the Scholars Trust.

ASERL (Association of Southeastern Research Libraries) has recently approved the ASERL Collaborative Journal Retention Program Agreement as a means of optimizing collection management across the consortium.  The  retention program agreement is in effect through December 31, 2035. A group of 24 ASERL libraries (and counting) are retaining titles under this agreement.  A read-only copy of the current working title list for those libraries (Excel spreadsheet) is named ASERL-Working-list_updated_2013_01_14) and is available for download here.

Woodruff Library’s current working title list (Google spreadsheet) is named Woodruff ASERL Journal Retention, and is available for viewing here.

If you would like to suggest corrections and/or additions to Woodruff Library’s working title list, please e-mail Steve Johnson (sjohns9@emory.edu).

A new application has been been developed to manage gaps, holdings, and communication between members: http://apps.uflib.ufl.edu/JRNL.

A libguide to assist users is here: http://guides.uflib.ufl.edu/content.php?pid=398425&sid=3262408
