SUNY Shared Collection was a SUNY-wide collection development initiative that began in 2006 and ended in late 2012.
It was initiated by the SUNY Collections and Access Council (SCAC). SCAC developed a pilot project to expand the depth of SUNY-wide collection for eight University Presses: Cornell University Press, Duke University Press, Harvard University Press, University of Chicago Press, University of Michigan Press, University of Minnesota Press, University of Washington Press and Yale University Press.
The university presses were selected based upon data from the interlibrary loan departments at the four SUNY university centers. The data collected demonstrated the need to expand the selections for these university presses and for Oxford University Press and Cambridge University Press. Including these two presses was cost prohibitive for the pilot program.
