CRL promotes opportunities for libraries and consortia to share information, expertise, and best practices for print preservation and management. The Print Archive Network (PAN) Forum is a free and open venue for information sharing about shared print programs. All those with an interest in shared print are welcome to attend and participate.

PAN Annual 2023 will be held in person and online at Chicago's McCormick Place Convention Center. The forum is shortened to two hours to ensure a lively event. 

For ongoing communications about the PAN Forum, please join the PAN listserv. Past event pages for PAN presentations and program reports are collected and archived. Older PAN presentations and updates are available in our PAN Event Index. The PAN archive provides access to older content contributed to PAN from 2009 to 2010.
