JRNL – Journal Retention and Needs Listing

The Journal Retention and Needs Listing (JRNL) (PDF) tool was first developed as a way for participating institutions to track journal retention commitments between the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) and Florida State University System (SUS) partners. Use of the listing tool expanded in 2013 with the formation of Scholars Trust, and again in 2015 when the Western Regional Storage Trust (WEST) adopted the software to manage their commitments. JRNL allows users to upload current journal holdings and identify particular gaps in those holdings. Further, users can determine if their institution has holdings that could be donated to other institutions to fill those gaps.
