Print Archive Network Forum (PAN)

The Center for Research Libraries promotes opportunities for knowledgeable individuals at libraries and consortia to share information, expertise and best practices on the strategic management of print holdings. The Print Archive Network (PAN) Forums are venues for this kind of information sharing. The semi-annual PAN Forum has been held since 2009. It occurs the Friday morning before ALA's annual and midwinter conferences. Everyone with an interest in print archiving is welcome to attend and participate in the Forums.
