  • 4. Why not DIY?

    Efficiencies for publisher and for third party

  • 5. Why MUSE chose INASP PERI
    Humanities and Social Science content focus
    (Research 4Life: HINARI, AGORA, OARE)
    INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
    IP verification
    Enforcement of abuse monitoring
    Pricing: Not free, but appropriate.
    Teaching me: low bandwidth, budget cycles, etc.
    Teaching them: librarians, scholars, budget makers, governments
    They will be the bad cop.
