Open Stack Collections

The Open Stack Collections at ASU Library include millions of print and openly-accessible digital materials for all to explore and use, creating new and ongoing opportunities for library users to discover and engage with previously unknown works.

Print books remain a vital part of the library’s redesigned, user-focused collections. The design of ASU Library’s print collections has been guided in part by The Future of Print initiative, with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which inspired new thinking around the development of inclusive, high-quality and user-focused print collections for research and learning.
