PALMPrint, preservation project for print legal materials, reaches 60 members

PALMPrint, the cooperative print legal preservation project organized by the New England Law Library Consortium (NELLCO) and the Legal Information Preservation Alliance (LIPA), now has 60 participating library members, according to a post by Darin Fox at the LIPA Blog.

NELLCO describes PALMPrint as follows:

Preserving America’s Legal Materials in Print (PALMPrint), is an exciting collaborative pilot project aimed at developing a shared, cirulating collection of primary, U.S. legal materials in print. Working with the Legal Information Preservation Alliance (LIPA), the two organizations jointly have committed to underwrite $120,000.00 of the total cost of the three-year project. The remaining costs will be shared by the participating libraries.[…]

More details on the project appear in this document.

Margie Maes of LIPA published a post about the project in October 2012.

It’s unclear whether PALMPrint functions as a last-copy print preservation program.
