[Forwarding from Abby Clobridge, via the JISC-Repositories list.  --Peter Suber.]


Dear Colleagues,

I am writing a book, Building Digital Repositories with Limited Resources, which is scheduled to be published by Chandos Publications in 2010. I am planning to include a section of case studies and best practices to give readers ideas they can easily and inexpensively adopt. If you have developed a tool, technique, method, project, or program that you would like to have considered to be included in the book, please fill out this questionnaire: http://bit.ly/bdrlr-survey01   

I am particularly interested in examples from institutions outside of the United States and case studies that would be applicable to academic libraries.

Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to): integrating web2.0 technologies into digital libraries; strategies for outreach and assessment; cost-effective digital preservation strategies; tools to automate metadata production; metadata production and repository workflow tools; and scalable methods for working with faculty to deposit their publications in open access repositories.

For further information about the book, please visit its page on the Woodhead Publishing web site: http://bit.ly/chandos-clobridge.

If you have any questions, please contact me at abby_clobridge@hks.harvard.edu.

Thank you.
