Libraries from multiple library sectors in Western New York have worked together to develop a regional collaborative “last copy” print repository – the Empire Shared Collection Repository (ESCR) – that provides continuing access to a shared collection of seldom-used serial-type materials. In this session, learn how the University at Buffalo, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, SUNY Buffalo State, and The College at Brockport have collaborated to develop the tools, standards, services, costs and policies that are needed to create and sustain a collaborative print repository.
