Print management at "Mega-scale" : a regional perspective on print book collections in North America by Brian F Lavoie( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Using a mega-regions ("geographical regions defined on the basis of economic integration and other forms of interdependence") framework to model regional consolidation of shared print book library collections, this report explores a counterfactual scenario where local US and Canadian print book library collections are consolidated into regional shared collections. The analysis in this paper builds upon findings from the OCLC Research report, Cloud-sourcing Research Collections: Managing Print in the Mass-digitized Library Environment (2011), and draws upon bibliographic and library holdings data from the WorldCat database

"In 2008, OCLC Research engaged an organization experienced in conducting risk assessments for corporate, governmental and educational clients with the objective of identifying the most significant risks facing research libraries.

Stewardship of the evolving scholarly record : from the invisible hand to conscious coordination by Brian F Lavoie( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The scholarly record is increasingly digital and networked, while at the same time expanding in both the volume and diversity of the material it contains. The long-term future of the scholarly record cannot be effectively secured with traditional stewardship models developed for print scholarly materials. This paper discusses the evolving scholarly record in the context of challenges raised for securing its long-term preservation and accessibility. We present a view of the salient features of future stewardship models adapted to the characteristics of a digital, networked scholarly record, and discuss practical implications of implementing these models
