COHRE will contribute substantially to business literature through
its publications. Academic (and practitioner) publications should
be made available in electronic format (via the World Wide Web and/or
a digital library server such as the University Library's SunSITE),
and should draw attention to the unique services COHRE will offer.
The University is studying
digital technologies and their impact on teaching, research and
library collections, at the system-wide and campus level. COHRE
should structure its scholarly dissemination program to take maximum
advantage of the University's
plans. Toward that end, we propose the following projects.
1) Create a series hypertextbooks of best practices that are
freely available via the Internet. (See prototype, Reinventing
the Workplace, by David Levine.)
a electronic, refereed journal that is freely available on via the
"Content-rich" offerings such as this can yield immediate credibility
and attention, and may enable COHRE to attract substantial extramural
funding. For example, the Mellon Foundation has funded digital
library proposals, and the David & Lucille Packard Foundation
has funded a multi-million dollar digital library initiative at
the Library of Congress.
The Corporate for National Research Initiatives publishes Digital
Libraries Magazine soley on the World Wide Web. It is a high quality,
refereed journal devoted to dissemination technologies.
an electronic clearinghouse of information, including:
ongoing electronic research and discovery program to help COHRE leadership
use electronic resources to maximize flexible, timely planning.
- *Links to
for members and interested persons
people for direct problem solving (could be limited to members)
5) Create opportunities for COHRE faculty to use information
gathered through COHRE's work for their publishing and research activities.
Create digital libraries available to select groups for this purpose.
(NOTE: restricted access libraries could not be mounted on the
University Library's SunSITE).
