SPAN Standing Committee

While each archive holder library will retain ownership of its materials, the holdings are subject to shared management. SPAN is run by a Standing Committee (changed from Management Committee in March 2021) that includes representatives from four of the participating libraries and at least one COPPUL director. With support from the COPPUL office, this committee oversees the initiative's operation and development, works to integrate SPAN with related archiving programs nationally and internationally, recommends solutions related to holdings disclosure and access/delivery, and develops and monitors a process to select titles for inclusion in the SPAN archive.
