ReCAP's current holdings total over 17 million items contributed by its partner libraries. This section of the site explains how we work together to preserve these collections and make them accessible to readers through a variety of means, including

  • Shared Collections, ensuring preservation of the historic print record, extensive collection of diverse contemporary publications, and expanded access to these materials. 
  • Borrowing, including Print Delivery, Digital Delivery, and On-site Research, making materials available to readers in a timely fashion, in the format suited to their work.
