OCLC and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) have completed a two-year project that has added support for the registration of serial retention commitments in OCLC’s WorldCat database, improved discovery of shared print data, and enhanced CRL’s Print Archives Preservation Registry (PAPR). The expanded functionality is a significant step forward in collectively managing the preservation of the scholarly record for future generations.

The Shared Print Data Infrastructure project was made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
