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 Midwinter 2024 will be held online. 

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.

CRL supports PAN to promote opportunities for libraries and consortia to share information, expertise, and best practices on shared print and the collection lifecycle.
