MedPrint: NLM’s Initiative to Preserve Print

Posted in: Blog

The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) are continuing their partnership in the quest to preserve print copies of biomedical journal titles through the medical serials print retention program (MedPrint.)  Realizing that we may not always have access to digitized articles, the NLM and many medical libraries have partnered to preserve print copies of a group of core biomedical journal titles.

The program is cooperative and voluntary and those libraries choosing to participate do not receive funding from the NLM for storage or maintenance.  The NLM has seven guidelines for libraries interested in participating. Among the more notable points are a time commitment to hold a title (25 years) and that a MedPrint library has to be a DOCLINE participant. If your library has a large collection of titles and you wish to learn more about the program  you may visit the MedPrint home page.   [jh]
