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

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.
