MI-SPI is a collaborative approach to maintaining the print book collections of libraries at Michigan state-supported universities. When two MI-SPI libraries commit to retaining widely-held low-use titles, the other participating libraries can safely withdraw those titles from the shelves since the titles are still reliably available.
In January 2017, withdrawal lists will be sent to all faculty in their respective discipline areas. Faculty will be asked to provide input about what they wish to retainfor the library collection. The deadline for input is Friday, March 10, 2017.
