#LawRepositories - Paul Royster - Keynote - Shaping the Repository
Nebraska-Lincoln - Repository on Digital Commons
The Philosophy of the UNL Repository:
- Service-first approach
- Make it easy
- Immediate feedback to authors
- Maximum uploading
- Repository belongs to the faculty / not to the university, or the people… (Interesting.)
11th Amendment Sovereign Immunity?
Tractor Test Reports
- The unique collection, might be popular.
- You’ll never know
Royster’s Unvarnished Opinions on Repositories
- Do it for them and they will approve
- Doesn’t believe in OA for the sake of OA
- CC licenses (but not a requirement)
- No depository mandate
- Control over IP scholars create
- It’s a publishing operation
Repository as Platform for Original Publishing
- Print on demand
- Free ebooks
- 33 titles to date from publishing / really about access
Publishing Business Model is Broken:
- Audience: 25 million U.S. college students and faculty; 3 billion internet uses online
- Use library publishing as a bulwark against publishers
- Eventually replace them?
- Publishers exploit the faculty, bleed the library. We can make them stop.
- 1-page publishing agreement from UN-L. Posted on website.
