Our vision is to ensure the long-term preservation of, access to, and integrity of monographic print resources.
Vision, Mission and Guiding Principles

The Rosemont Shared Print Alliance was a separate organization similarly focused on ensuring the retention of and access to print journal backfiles. The two organizations are currently completing the process of a merger and, as of July 1st, 2024, they have formed a single entity known as the Shared Print Partnership. The following year will serve as a bridge to finalize the scope and mission of this new organization.

By creating a collaborative collection which elevates the concept of a library collection to scale above a single institution, shared print programs help research libraries to fulfill their mission to preserve the scholarly record in an era of changing usage, limited funding, and space constraints.
