OCLC and CRL Complete Shared Print Project

OCLC and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) finished their 2-year project to add “support for the registration of serial retention commitments in OCLC’s WorldCat database, [improve] discovery of shared print data, and [enhance] CRL’s Print Archives Preservation Registry (PAPR).” This expanded functionality—which was funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation—helps to manage the preservation of the scholarly record for the future.

According to the press release, “OCLC and CRL worked together to enhance and simplify registration workflows, allowing shared print programs to quickly set up and then efficiently bulk register thousands of commitments in WorldCat in only a few steps. Serial commitments in WorldCat will be automatically synchronized to PAPR and are also discoverable through an enhanced OCLC Metadata API that provides systematic access to shared print data. This comprehensive shared print data will then be available to inform library decision-making, improving both retention and collection development strategies.”
