During Phase 1 of the project, journals will be selected for withdrawal from participating libraries, while SCONUL
will ensure that the minimum number of copies is retained in the collaborative collection.
For example, in the UK university libraries can develop performance measures based on the SCONUL
(Society of College, University, and National Libraries) guidelines or feed into HEFCE institutional targets.

As yet, the community of higher education libraries has not produced a set of information literacy standards such as those developed by the Council of Australian University Librarians (2001), ACRL, or SCONUL.
Information skills in higher education: A SCONUL position paper.
The impending arrival of a subject review significantly increases academic keenness to talk seriously and systematically to library colleagues, and libraries can build on this by using the SCONUL aide-memoire as a kind of script for these discussions.
After a year's pause, the agencies which fund higher education passed the issue to the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals, who passed it on to SCONUL.
SCONUL has tackled this issue by relying on the work of funded researchers on United Kingdom and European Community projects.
The SCONUL Advisory Committee on Performance Indicators (ACPI), which has responsibility for this area, determined a number of steps to try to move forward, including:
For example, performance indicators discussed by Van House and Weil (1990), Kantor (1984), or Keys (1990) were not regarded as applicable, and it is not evident that the work done by SCONUL
(and previously by COPOL) is considered suitable either, although both sets of work are well known within Australian university library circles.
