Cleveland State University was added to the membership in 2003. Oberlin College and the Ohio Historial Society became members in 2004 and 2005, respectively. The member libraries composing the consortium share a similar collecting focus in related subjects and a geographic proximity which permits collaborative efforts and resource sharing.

Documents date from approximately 1987 to 2001 and include files of minutes, agenda, correspondence and notes pertaining to meetings and issues relevant to the CPCCM.
