Print Retention and
Withdrawal
The JSTOR Project
OSU Libraries:
Current Challenges
1. Adding New Acquisitions
to the Collections
2. Consolidating Collections
3. Storage Space Issues
Adding New Acquisitions
to the Collection
• The Libraries add 127,000+
volumes to the collection
annually*
*2009 ARL statistics
• These do not include:
•
•
•
Volumes added to the Health Sciences,
Law and regional library collections
Microforms
Electronic resources
Consolidating Collections
Music & Dance Library
(MUS) materials being
moved to the Science
& Engineering Library
(SEL) by Summer
2011 because of
upcoming Sullivant
Hall renovation
Consolidating Collections
Collections and
services offered
by MUS and SEL
must be
consolidated
into existing
SEL space
Storage Space
Issues
• Space needed for new
•
•
additions to the collections
Book Depository (STX)
storage facility is at
capacity
No additional storage likely
to become available in the
foreseeable future
Physical Solutions
•
•
Withdraw items from MUS,
SEL and STX, applying the
Libraries “Print Retention
and Withdrawal” policy
Transfer items from MUS
and SEL to STX, as
volumes currently at STX
are withdrawn
The JSTOR Project
•
Founded in 1995, JSTOR is a notfor-profit service that helps scholars,
researchers, and students discover,
use, and build upon a wide range of
content in a digital archive of over
1,000 academic journals and other
scholarly content.
•
JSTOR’s development was
supported by the Mellon
Foundation.
About JSTOR
•
Purpose: A service for libraries to
outsource storage of print journals
•
Goal: Archives multiple paper
copies
•
Harvard and California Digital
Library have print copies archived
for preservation purposes
•
CRL (Center for Research Libraries)
in Chicago) is also a print back-up
site : OSU journal discards are sent
to fill in CRL gaps )
JSTOR and the OSU Libraries
•
OSU Libraries donated $30,000 in
1997 to help develop JSTOR.
•
OSU Libraries purchased nine
JSTOR collections at a cost of
$116,575.
•
OSU pays JSTOR $58,000 annually
for online access and outsourced
archiving services.
JSTOR and the OSU Libraries
• OSUL contributes withdrawn
volumes, if needed by CRL, for
redundant print archiving or future
borrowing if a print copy is again
required
• OhioLINK libraries are discussing
retaining a minimum of two print
copies of JSTOR titles for
OhioLINK loans
JSTOR Math Titles

we may never have subscribed to all

Next Steps
• Subject librarians will be notified
by email when wiki is live and
JSTOR titles are posted
• Procedure: All JSTOR titles will
be withdrawn to provide needed
space – unless they fit criteria to
be retained
• 1st priority will be titles in STX,
SEL, MUS
Next Steps
• All staff/students managing
withdrawals and transfers will be
re-trained on JSTOR criteria using
updated training materials
• Withdrawn volumes on OSU
regional campus libraries’ wiki
“pick list” and CRL wish list will be
shipped to them
Print Volumes will be retained
for certain categories
• High graphic content
(i.e. photos, art work)
• Continuing high
circulation of print
volumes
