ATG Interviews Greg Eow, Part 1, President, Center for Research Libraries, Global Resources Network – Charleston Hub

“We’re putting together a webinar to talk about exactly this issue.  How can scholars and publishers and librarians, so sort of this three-legged stool, how can we work together to find new models for creating and disseminating and preserving content that works for all of these communities?  We’re going to have representatives from PLoS come and talk about their new business model exploring Community Action Publishing which is similar in some ways to the MIT Press Direct to Open Model.  And then we’re also going to talk about the Global Press Archive which is a collaboration between CRL and Eastview which is similar to a Direct to Open publishing model but for newspaper content.  So, those are some things that we’re doing later this month but that’s something that we want to build on in the future. ”
