Contexts and Contributions: Building the Distributed Library, Martha L. Brogan, Digital Library Federation, Washington, D.C. 2006.
"The Digital Library Federation (DLF) is pleased to
announce "Contexts and Contributions: Building the Distributed Library,"
by Martha L. Brogan (http://purl.org/dlf/pubs/dlf106/). The report is a
major contribution to DLF's suite of work that focuses on harvestable
metadata and services that help us access and use our distributed
digital content more effectively.
"Contexts and Contributions grew from work Ms. Brogan undertook for DLF in 2003, published as "A Survey of Digital Library Aggregation Services" (http://purl.org/dlf/pubs/dlf101/). That environmental scan influenced our understanding of early attempts to craft aggregated digital library services that serve students and scholars well, and it had a positive impact on the development of the services that followed."

Networked Reference Services: Question/Answer Transaction Protocol, NISO Technical Report TR04-2006, National Information Standards Organization, 2006.
"Abstract: The Networked Reference Services Question/Answer Transaction Protocol covers processing transactions for interchange of messages between digital reference domains. It defines a set of messages and associated rules of syntax and semantics for this interchange that will support processing and routing of questions and responses and packaging of other information to be exchanged. Metadata element sets needed to identify and describe key components of both question and answer data and institutional and personal data are defined, although some sets are maintained outside the standard."

The Report of the East of England Digital Preservation Project, published jointly by the East of England Regional Archive Council (EERAC) and MLA East of England. 2006.
"The report describes a pilot project designed to investigate the issues which would need to be resolved if a regional digital repository were set up, and the costs which would arise from this. The report presents the results of two years' work and is probably the first realistic attempt to point the way forward. Taking as its starting point the anticipated needs of local authorities, the report looks in detail at the processes and costs involved in preserving and managing digital records of the types routinely dealt with by local authority records managers and archivists, including privately deposited material."

DINI certificate for document and publication services (draft), Electronic Publishing Working Group, Deutsche Initiative für Netzwerkinformation (DINI), German Initiative for Network Information, Version 2, September 2006.
"Installing and institutionalising document and publication repositories at universities creates the opportunity to archive scholarly publications that were produced at the respective universities and to offer them to a worldwide audience. This new service offered by libraries and computing centres as infrastructure facilities helps disseminate the idea of electronic publishing as a new tool for academic work. DINI, the Deutsche Initiative für Netzwerkinformation (German Initiative for Network Information), supports this to reach a higher level of scientific and scholarly communication both nationally and internationally....The 'DINI-Certificate Document and Publication Services' includes current international developments, describes how Document and Publication Services support the open-access publication of scholarly documents, and shows how as Institutional Repositories they can position themselves in their respective institutions, especially with regard to supporting scholars and scientists to make pre and post prints of their documents available that have already been published by publishing houses free of time or space constraints."
