Participant Discussions
• Calls to potential WEST participants during November and
December 2009 to learn institutional goals and priorities,
operational considerations
• Nearly-universal comment: NEED MORE SPACE ASAP
• Many libraries have not significantly drawn down print journal
volumes even for JSTOR
– Deterrents include: cost, other priorities, concerns about
access and validation
• Other concerns:
– May be harder to justify financial support for archiving widelyavailable digital materials
– May be difficult to afford significant validation
– May need to consider deduping storage facilities
