Upcoming Webinar on National Overlap Study on Government Publications

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries and Library and Archives Canada are hosting a webinar on June 25, 2020 on the National Overlap Study on Government Publications:
"The Canadian Collective Print Strategies Working Group (CCPSWG), co-chaired by the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and Library and Archives Canada (LAC), was created in 2018 in response to interest expressed during the November 2017 @Risk North open forum for national coordinated shared print collections. One of this working group’s primary activities has been to undertake, along with 26 participating libraries from across Canada, a National Overlap Study on Government Publications."

"This webinar will discuss the overlap study project and its outcomes, as well as findings and recommendations of the working group regarding future national shared print activities."
The organizers of the @Risk North forum published a summary report a little over 2 years ago:
"As libraries witness increasing demand for online resources and dwindling circulation of print holdings, while simultaneously confronting budget and space pressures, it can be challenging to remain committed to sustaining academic libraries’ print collections. Cooperative approaches to acquiring, storing, preserving, and managing the reduction of print collections are gaining traction, employing a variety of models that seek to distribute the expense and responsibility while creating value for all parties."
