The Ohio State University Libraries are evaluating a project to create a center that will 1) house last copies of print materials in Ohio research libraries at 2) a centralized fulfillment center serving the entire state through rapid print and digital delivery and 3) enable this mega-collection to give Ohio libraries an advantageous position in the emerging national "collective collections" efforts. This position would advance initiatives that could include large scale digitization, expedited interlibrary lending among research collections nationwide, and cooperative commitments to ensure the preservation of the national collection at sustainable costs.
