About a month ago Library Journal’s Michael Kelley wrote an in-depth overview of the Maine Shared Collections Strategy (MSCS).

The drivers of the Maine Shared Collections Strategy (MSCS)—lack of available space, budget cuts, low usage per cost and availability of electronic resources—are common throughout the library world.

The 64 slides are titled: Preliminary Analysis of Maine Shared Collections Strategy (MSCS).
They deck includes information about:
