UC Colleagues,
The UC Libraries Shared Print RoadMap for 2014-2018 Recommended Activities to Pursue is now available online: http://www.cdlib.org/services/collections/sharedprint/
The Shared Print RoadMap was developed by the Shared Print Strategy Team in consultation with SAG3 to advance the goals and strategies described in the UC Shared Print 2013-2018 Strategic Plan. The RoadMap is a high level planning document to guide future shared print activities and scope of work. It includes a short list of recommended activities to pursue (and not pursue) to advance UC's goals around print collaboration. It also includes a general timeline for exploration, planning and development of proposed activities.
Recommended activities for the UC Libraries shared print collections include:

* Coordinated print serials archiving to the RLFs and a de-duplication service.

* Retrospective shared print monographs program.

* Coordinated digitization and print retention of State Documents.

* Disclose UC Shared Print collections in union catalogs (OCLC WorldCat, CRL PAPR).

* Revise the "persistence policy".

* Assess existing shared print projects and policies and make adjustments.
The UC Libraries Shared Print RoadMap is endorsed by the Council of University of Librarians and the UC Libraries Advisory Structure's SAG3. Both extend their thanks to the Shared Print Strategy Team led by Emily Stambaugh, and the various groups who have reviewed and provided input on the RoadMap, for the thoughtful time and energy that went into identifying a plan for future shared print activities for the UC Libraries.
Questions pertaining to the Shared Print RoadMap 2014-2018 can be directed to campus members on the Shared Print Strategy Team. To follow shared print activities, please look for announcements on CDL Info or the "latest news" section of the shared print website.
