ULS joins Eastern Academic Scholars' Trust (EAST)

The ULS has recently joined Eastern Academic Scholars’ Trust (EAST), a newly formed shared print retention partnership of college and university libraries. The mission of EAST is to ensure scholars, including faculty and students in the Eastern region of the United States, have access to the scholarly record of print monographs and print journals and serials through multi-library collaborative arrangements that ensure copies of even infrequently used materials are retained in sufficient number to be readily available. A number of our fellow NERL members are already EAST members.

We will be working with EAST by sharing our holdings information, committing to retaining print collections for 15 years, and participating in governance and programmatic activities.
