and reporting to the Direction & Oversight Committee (DOC), develops strategies and directions
for collaboration around print collections among UC Libraries and with extramural partners.
The Team is charged to plan and implement strategies, including development of a Strategic
Plan and RoadMap for future priorities and activities.
The Shared Print Strategy Team develops strategies and directions for collaboration around
print collections among UC Libraries and with extramural partners, including:
- Collection development and management issues, activities, policies, and criteria for UC-wide and extramural shared print initiatives (in consultation with the Shared Content Leadership Group (SCLG), which has overall responsibility for shared collection development and management).
- Issues and policy development associated with tools, technologies, and standards that facilitate how shared print content is analyzed, selected, preserved, described, disclosed, discovered, and accessed.
