John Weed will serve on library storage facility task force

John Weed, Head of Collection Resources in the Briscoe Library, has been selected to serve on a newly-created Joint Library Storage Facility Policy and Procedure Task Force.  The task force is charged with developing operating guidelines for a planned one million-volume library storage facility, which will be built on the Texas A&M Riverside campus in College Station.

The storage facility is a project of University of Texas System and Texas A&M University.

UT System and Texas A&M libraries will be able to store books and journals in this facility using the Resource in Common principle: If one library deposits a book or journal volume in the storage facility, other libraries will be able to discard the book or journal if they hold it in their collection, yet still claim ownership of the book or volume.
