From the Call:
Economic Factors of Managing Digital Content and Establishing Digital Libraries
There are several aspects to the effective utilization of resources in
relation to digital information. The immediate start-up costs of either
creating or purchasing digital content; the further implementation costs
for establishing a digital library or even just basic access to bought
resources; which are followed by the costs implicit in managing and
maintaining a digital resource in the longer term. Hand-in-hand with
resource expenditure is the value and benefit derived from the resource
itself, and how these are measured and offset against costs.
Papers are invited for this issue of JoDI that can deliver new insights and
research findings related to the economic factors of managing digital
content and establishing digital libraries.
