Libraries worldwide are transforming their spaces to better align with the changing needs of their communities. The Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium (SCELC) has initiated a collection analysis project to gain insight on collection overlap and usage as a basis for establishing a sustainable shared collections program among its members.

SCELC chose ProQuest Intota™ Assessment for comprehensive analysis of more than 4.5 million monographs across nine member libraries participating in the pilot project.

Outcomes from this multi-phase effort will shape the development of a formal program that will allow libraries to plan for responsible reduction in the number of print monographs in their collections, which ultimately will create space in libraries for collaborative learning and other purposes. The analysis will identify unique and prevalent copies so that libraries may determine which resources will be preserved and shared among libraries.
