Many of the benefits and "lessons learned" from the Shuttle-Mir Program were identified in an August, 1998, NASA Fact Sheet, titled The International Space Station: Benefits from the Shuttle-Mir Program, available in PDF format on this web site.
Also, some of Shuttle-Mir Program Director Frank Culbertson's comments on the value of Phase 1 are excerpted in Shuttle-Mir Goals.
