    Monograph Validation Strategies in Shared Print Programs: Variations and Value
    (Collaborative Librarianship, 2016) Koch, Teresa; Welch, Andrew J.
    In 2013, the Central Iowa Collaborative Collections Initiative (CI-CCI) entered into a shared print monograph retention agreement which resulted in a project to fully validate the assigned retention commitments. While shared print retention programs are becoming increasingly common, they often do not include a process for verification of availability and condition of volumes. This article focuses on the validation aspect of the CI-CCI program and the rationale behind it, and examines how other print collaborative projects view and approach validation. Finally, the article concludes with a summary and an analysis of the value of this effort.
