2 What I’ll be covering.. What is it? Why it is? The story so far Phase 2 - Current activity Future plans Over to you...

3 UKSG Conference 30th March - 1st April UKRR is… A collaborative, coordinated and sustainable approach to long-term retention, storage and access to low use print research journals.

4 UKSG Conference 30th March - 1st April Why it is - 1 Timing was right Responds to some key drivers:  space pressures  funding for additional space – low priority  move to centralise libraries  online archives – sustainable access  inclusive of many key stakeholders  joined up approach

6 UKSG Conference 30th March - 1st April Why it is? - 3 UKRR delivers:  Quick and easy access to research material  Coordinated retention of print journals  Collaborative storage of print journals  Release of space for other initiatives  Economic advantages

28 UKSG Conference 30th March - 1st April UKRR Phase Two Challenges – include:  Data: quality retrievability accessibility timeliness workflows – robust & sustainable trust – need to support decisions

29 UKSG Conference 30th March - 1st April UKRR Phase Two Challenges – include:  Money: value for money - big picture cost benefit – opportunity costs from funded project – sustainable service

30 UKSG Conference 30th March - 1st April UKRR: Long term future By 2014 UKRR - sustainable A positive partnership in action.. What next?  Other sectors e.g. Learned societies..  Monographs..  Grey literature..
