Joining EAST

In support of its mission to protect print scholarly books and journals, EAST continues to grow its membership.  Libraries interested in joining EAST should review the criteria for joining approved by the EAST Executive Committee, available here, and contact EAST Project Director Susan Stearns ( for additional information.

EAST is particularly interested in working with libraries with rare and specialized collections,  those under-represented in shared print programs, and library consortia or other groups who may be interested in undertaking shared print, but may not have local resources to support the work.  

Libraries interested in joining EAST may wish to consult this document focused on the value EAST provides to its member libraries.
