SCS Circulating Collection Analysis

We recently received the results of an analysis of our circulating book collection from Sustainable Collection Services (SCS). The analysis was done in conjunction with ConnectNY’s Shared Print Archive project, which is intended to “further our collaboration through greater mutual reliance on our respective circulating print book collections, and in the process relieving pressure on both library shelf space and storage space.” (

USMA, having undergone this on our own in preparation for the move to Jefferson Hall, is not an active participant in the project but have contributed our data in support.

The summary report of the analysis is available in Sharepoint at

SCS also provides access to GreenGlass, an analytical tool containing our data. There are brief tutorials on the tool here:

If you would like to use the GreenGlass tool, let me know and I will arrange an account for you.
