Lessons Learned – Ideas Emerged • Focused collection development plans help overcome organizational inertia by providing paths forward. • Curators want to collect at both the document level and the Website level. • Discovering and acquiring collections of Web published materials is not yet supported by vendors at the level they support acquisition of print or e-journals. • Smaller government agencies and smaller publishing houses are generally unable to assume stewardship for the materials they publish.
Lessons Learned – Ideas Emerged…more • There is a need for internal collaborations within large institutions. • Proactive collaborations across organizations are important: • Among state/federal agencies and university libraries • Among large institutions for cross-repository information discovery • Need for policies that address take-down requests – from content owners or from individuals. • Must clarify issues related to “official-ness” and “authenticity” of materials we capture.
