The landscape of libraries' print collection has changed significantly over the past decades. On an institutional level, libraries need to evaluate available resources, local researchers' needs, and find the right balance between print and electronic material in order to support parent institutions' development and growth. On a national level, we have seen different schemes being developed in several countries to support libraries' activities in a time of change. There is no doubt that print materials are being disposed of at an industrial level. When more and more libraries are transitioning into E-only, what's the impact of losing print? Collaboration and coordination regarding print disposal tend to take place on a regional level (e.g. peer-to-peer network) or nationally (e.g. repository libraries, UK Research Reserve), but what about working on an international level? Through my presentation, I'd like to explore relevant issues and share our experience so far.
