  16. 16. iTunes U •  Since Launch on Feb 2: •  50,120 browses •  1,646 subscriptions •  6,007 downloads @chrisfreeland
  17. 17. DOIs Have assigned 49,000 DOIs to BHL monographs @chrisfreeland
  18. 18. Purpose of exercise •  Make legacy scientific literature citable via modern systems •  Make 250+ years of scholarly communications available via new tools •  Assign contemporary identifiers to legacy literature •  DOI •  ISBN •  ISSN @chrisfreeland
  19. 19. DOI, ISBN, ISSN, ei, ei,…uh oh… •  Ran into trouble with each agency •  BHL isn’t a publisher •  BHL is a consortium, not a separate legal entity •  BHL doesn’t own all the content it serves •  “We know we need a policy on that…” …and on…and on…for more than 3 years… @chrisfreeland
  20. 20. Challenge: Title Matching for Uniqueness •  Only want 1 DOI per intellectual, citable unit •  Differences between cataloging publishing •  Libraries: datafield tag=245 ind1=1 ind2=4 subfield code=aThe amoebae living in man;/subfield subfield code=ba zoological monograph,/subfield subfield code=cby Clifford Dobell./subfield /datafield •  Publishers: titleThe amoebae living in man; a zoological monograph/title @chrisfreeland
  21. 21. Challenge: Monographs/Series/Monographic Series •  “Report on the Rhynchota collected by the Wollaston Expedition in Dutch New Guinea” •  Published in 1914 •  Bound catalogued as a monograph •  Scanned as a monograph •  Assigned a DOI as a monograph in BHL:http://dx.doi.org/10.5962/bhl.title.13791 •  Transactions of the Zoological Society of London, vol. 20, pt. 11. •  Presented by current publisher of that title as an article •  Assigned a DOI as a journal article: http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1469-7998.1912.tb07839x Guess who provides free access?
  22. 22. Challenge: Ownership of Backfiles •  Who owns public domain works? •  Some publishers consider they have ownership of backfiles for journals they currently publish •  Long running series in natural history •  Curtis’s Botanical Magazine, since 1787 •  Those publishers assign DOIs to their current volumes •  BHL assigns DOIs to the public domain works we’ve digitized Guess who is upset?
