Print Archives Preservation Registry now online

US Print Archives Preservation Registry now online – 06 Aug 2012

The Print Archives Preservation Registry (PAPR) has announced that it is now available online at http://papr.crl.edu. The registry is designed to support archiving and management of serial collections by providing detailed information about titles, holdings, and terms and conditions of the major print archiving programs.

PAPR now includes a searchable database, tab-delimited reports for download, and the simultaneous display of title and holdings information from multiple print archiving programmes, including the Western Regional Storage Trust (WEST), Law Library Microform Consortium (LLMC), and CRL’s JSTOR archive. It also references titles held in digital format by Portico and CLOCKSS. Most of the records included at this time are for the WEST project archives.

The California Digital Library (CDL) is CRL’s PAPR development partner. Additional advisory services were provided by CRL consultant Lizanne Payne and Ithaka S+R. This first phase focused on developing a data analysis system for WEST and on using the standards developed by the OCLC print archives disclosure pilot project to transmit data via the MARC field 583. The next phase will address additional functional, data and user needs.

At this time the registry is a work in progress; its usefulness will depend upon input and participation by the CRL community. CRL welcomes all ideas and feedback.
