White Rose Libraries: understanding collection overlap

The White Rose Libraries consortium have produced a final report on their investigations into collection overlap between the three member libraries (York, Leeds and Sheffield).  It sets out the results of a Jisc funded investigation exploring matching and de-duplication of bibliographic records in the Jisc CCM tool and SCS/OCLC GreenGlass, compared with manually checked results.

It is hoped that the report will be of significant interest to the library community, usefully helping to refine collection management requirements both for existing tools and for the emerging National Bibliographic Knowledgebase (NBK).  The authors are keen to ensure that the report is widely shared.

The full report including extensive Appendices is available below:
