Assessing the benefits of a national print repository: an Australian overlap study
MetadataShow full item record
This paper reports on current research assessing the potential space savings that can be made if Australian academic libraries implement a national repository for the storage of legacy print collections. The paper reports on data derived from a collection overlap study based on members of the CARM (CAVAL Archives and Research Materials) Store in order to estimate the impact of a fully implemented national repository. It includes a calculation of the shelf and floor space that libraries might potentially retrieve for other purposes.
