Abstract

Preston Medical Library is an academic medical center library serving the University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine and the UT Medical Center hospital. The library conducted an analysis of the bound print collection in anticipation of relocating within the hospital. This analysis contemplated replacing a subset of bound print with electronic archives as compared to costs of moving and maintaining the collection. The library concluded that a one-time purchase of electronic back files, while more expensive, would result in greatly enhanced access, expanded usable space, and lowered collection maintenance costs going forward.
