15-20% of e-journal titles are being preserved. How we collect commercially published electronic content is different because we’re not in control when we don’t own it. Archiving the web? If it is free people do not want to support it (like classic game theory).
Here are just a few of the tips on writing offered by Faye Chadwell, Donald and Delpha Campbell University Librarian and OSU Press Director, Oregon State University) and by Lisa German, Dean for Collections, Information and Access Services, The Pennsylvania State University Libraries:
- Remember to check author guidelines
- Lit review is important to set context
- Push back on copyright contract (easier if not on promotion/tenure track)
- Must carve out weekly couple of hours for writing. Has to be sacred. (LEC: I think this has to be the hardest of these!)
I have more detailed notes on e-books, and I can elaborate more (over coffee?) if your interest is piqued!
