23 1. In-house digitization (digital delivery) 2. Collaborative digitization initiatives 3. Negotiated discounts for licensed content Electronic Resources: new ways to build collections

24 Collaborative Digitization World Newspaper Archive Member funded: over 60 charter contributors, plus other CRL libraries offered moderate, scaled purchase price Modules available on NewsBank platform: Latin America Sub-Saharan Africa South Asia (open trial over 8/9/10)

25 Collaborative Digitization American Periodicals from Center for Research Libraries (APCRL) CRL content digitized and distributed by ProQuest Over 300 trade and popular journal titles (3 million page goal), some from CRL members CRL discounts for purchase Digital ILL for all CRL libraries

26 Collaborative Digitization EThOS (British Library’s Electronic Theses Online Service) CRL has sponsored accelerated digitization of 400 priority titles we hold in microfilm – majority are Islamic themes Demand purchase – funding individual titles requested by researchers

27 New undertaking with Law Libraries Microform Consortium (LLMC) LLMC-Digital database: 20 million pages converted legal and government texts Access open to all CRL libraries in FY11 Collaborative Digitization: consortium partnership

28 Joint Steering Committee -- Guide identification of collections for future digitization from CRL and other repositories -- Support CRL libraries’ research interests, particularly area studies – African, Latin American, etc. -- Over 5 million pages added to LLMC-Digital annually

29 Electronic resource collection building: negotiated discounts Specialized resources often not obtained through regional consortia (news, area studies primary resources, etc.) FY10 Purchase Proposal identified digital collections, two prioritized (Mass Observation, Making of the Modern World) Discounts jointly offered with NERL in May 2010 Very favorable discount; member interest but modest take-up (titles already marketed)

30 Electronic resource collection building: negotiated discounts For FY11: gauge member interest during pre- release, leverage scaled negotiated rates for local purchase Timing keyed to product release instead of purchase ballot schedule? Two titles: Foreign Office Files for Afghanistan (Adam Matthew), Times of India (ProQuest Historical Newspapers) We will hold teleconferences to discuss options on 8/30 & 9/8 -- look for e-mail notices
