Who will provide libraries of
historic serials online?
Google, Yahoo, Microsoft?
Serial content being ingested along with monograph
Thus far not being treated specially or systematically
Already broad coverage, but still limited; limited access;
no inherent monopoly on public domain content
Let central consortia do it?
JSTOR et al cant do everything; and limited access may
inhibit reuse, repurposing, remixing
Libraries do it ourselves?
We have the content, constituency, mission, know-how
Scanner tech, storage, and sharing all getting cheaper
