Collaborative library storage for the uk he sector

Collaborative library storage for the UK HE sector


Space crisis in uk research libraries

Space crisis in UK research libraries

  • Consultants’ report – 450km by 2015

  • Space pressures high priority for 90% CURL libraries

  • Competition for university resources

  • Major capital investment on campus

  • CURL libraries manage 4,222 print subs each

  • Duplication of holdings


Consultants options

Consultants’ options

1)HEIs rent space together (regional)

2)HEIs manage space collaboratively

3)HEIs manage collections collaboratively

4)‘National Reserve’ based on BL collections plus


Option 4 preferred

Option 4 preferred

  • ‘Last copy’ print repository for preservation & access

  • Infrastructure already exists

  • BL collections form the core

  • Over 80% BL/CURL overlap (journals)

  • 50% unique to BL

  • Other libraries can add unique material

  • ‘In perpetuity’ guarantee

  • Informal activity based on BL’s current role

  • Extension & formalisation

  • Most cost effective solution


Option 4 summary

Option 4 summary

  • Permanent preservation of low use print in appropriate, cost-effective storage

  • Efficient (wider!) & cost-effective access (just-in-time)

  • Encourage de-duplication of low-use print, releasing space in universities, avoiding need for capital investment locally

    (‘invest to save’)

  • Extension of BL’s existing research infrastructure role


Additional suggestions

Additional suggestions

  • Start with serials, focus on low use

  • Also books

  • RIN at centre of governance

  • BL funding based on business plan

  • Need to manage perception of BL monopoly


Consultation discussion

Consultation & discussion

  • Scope of reserve collection

  • Number of copies & where?

  • Access arrangements key (SLA)

  • Governance arrangements

  • Possible funding sources

  • Business model

  • Possible savings to HE (£100 m, 10 years)


Consultation steps to implementation

Consultation & steps to implementation

  • Key stakeholder involvement

  • Development of communications plan

  • Task force established (CURL led)

  • Develop service, operation & business models

  • Develop governance model

  • Pilot phase (early adoptors)

  • Develop funding case
