National monograph strategy
Exploring the potential for a national approach to the collection, preservation, supply and digitisation of scholarly monographs
Started 1 Sep 2014
£250k to £1m
The national monograph strategy is a collaboration between Jisc, Research Libraries UK (RLUK) and the Society for Colleges, National and University Libraries (SCONUL) to begin collectively addressing some of the core challenges that confront the provision and support of the scholarly monograph; past, present and future.
What we're doing
Following a series of participative workshops the project is developing a roadmap that describes a series of practical, doable ideas; ideas that will evolve and respond to changing contexts, user needs and the results of prototypes and pilots.
Over the next few months the project will begin to develop plans for these potential pilots and prototypes.
The roadmap seeks to provide a coherent picture of a shared infrastructure that can deliver a distributed national research collection for the UK. As such, the solution includes interventions that move from the policy, foresight and licensing/business model level, through to the main infrastructure components which enable the development of new services and applications.
