Views on the DASER-2 Summit, Dec. 2-4, 2005

  • Impact of OA on the future of STM libraries;
  • Institutional repository models: what works and what doesn't;
  • Publisher-library collaboration strategies, now and in the near future;
  • Institutional repository object issues--theses, datasets, learning objects, etc.;
  • User needs and patterns related to digital libraries.
