Bill and others,


Virginia Tech has maintained government documents at our storage facilities for longer than I’ve been affiliated with the program (or better said, more than 25 years now).  There have always been regular retrieval of materials from storage but not everything at storage is adequately cataloged.  We are working on that.  Our storage facilities have always been exclusively for Virginia Tech.

I’m curious how many folks are currently sending depository materials to a storage facility.  I’m also curious if your materials are going into a shared facility, ie shared with another institution.


Reply to the list if you want to share and me – sudduthw [at] if you just want my eyes to see your message.


Last question – how many of you would be interested in an ASERL webinar on the issues?
