The Eastern Academic Scholars’ Trust (EAST) is a major shared print initiative primarily focusing on monograph collections among 47 academic libraries across New England, New York and Pennsylvania. During the initial two-year implementation phase (2015-2017), EAST libraries will conduct a collection analysis, secure retention agreements, design and analyze a two-part sample-based validation study, plan for future EAST membership, and begin to explore reciprocal agreements with other regional and national shared print programs. The meeting at ALA Midwinter 2016 will provide an overview of the project and the first few months of implementation.
