Shared Collections Committee: About Us

Information and Resources from the Shared Collections Committee of the Academic Libraries of Indiana (ALI)

What We Do

Established in 2018, the Shared Collections Committee was formed to:

  • Assess the current state of shared collections in Indiana
  • Investigate and develop strategies for lightweight and sustainable statewide collaborations in the area of shared collections
  • Liaise and collaborate with regional and national shared print initiatives
  • Develop a communications plan for explaining and promoting shared collections efforts within the state
  • Work with other ALI Committees to develop overarching strategies around collections

Our Committee is an outgrowth of the ALI-PALNI Shared Print Project.
