New OCLC Research report published

The report “Cloud-sourcing research collections: Managing print in the mass-digitized library environment” was just published.

http://www.oclc.org/research/publications/library/2011/2011-01.pdf

From the news announcement:

“The objective of the project was to examine the feasibility of outsourcing management of low-use print books held in academic libraries to shared service providers, including large-scale print and digital repositories. The study assessed the opportunity for library space saving and cost avoidance through the systematic and intentional outsourcing of local management operations for digitized books to shared service providers and progressive downsizing of local print collections in favor of negotiated access to the digitized corpus and regionally consolidated print inventory.”
