Title: Large-Scale Open Access, Non-Profit Collaborative Humanities Repositories (& Why Publishers Care)
In this presentation, I will examine several large-scale open access, non-profit collaborative humanities repositories being created in the United States, including conceptual infrastructures, funding models, and how copyright issues are being addressed.
I will also discuss why publishers (particularly in the humanities) are contributing to these initiatives, why institutions are increasingly utilizing collaborative approaches in a non-profit manner, and what kinds of data records/standards are being utilized for different projects.
Initiatives to be examined will include, among others: The Digital Public Library of America and Open ARTstor's contributions to the project; ARTstor's Shared Shelf Commons and Images for Academic Publishing program; the Hathi Trust Digital Library; and JSTOR's Early Journal Content and Register & Read programs.
