   Public-Private Mass Digitization
                   Appearance vs. reality

1. They are non-exclusive deals

2. The private partner bears all the costs

3. Institutions are free to serve the content to users

4. They are only limited term deals




                                                                OCA Oct 17

Future Negotiations

 Limited confidentiality - Open the Discussion,
  Consult with Peers
 More complete deliverables - Collect and
  Retain All Digitized Data
 More open access - Preserve Traditional
  Freedoms to Support Research and Scholarship
 Less restricted distribution – Strive for the
  Freedom to Aggregate Content
 Responsible treatment of usage data -
  Include Usage Data in Negotiations
 Limited duration and survivability - Avoid
  Contract Exclusivity and Perpetuity

                                                            OCA Oct 17

Negotiating strategy
 Inform your counsel of your desired outcome
 Let counsel determine warranties and
  indemnifications
 Know your bottom line – at what point are you
  prepared to walk away?
 Start with the best agreement to date
 Negotiate on behalf of the broader community
 How much more would it cost to make it free?

 Focus on special collections

 Material that
   is unique or rare
   is in a variety of formats
   will only be acquired once
   need only be cataloged once
   supports our local users
   will be accessed by remote users

 Scale up digitization to avoid marginalization



                                                              OCA Oct 17

Special collections - Shifting Gears:
Gearing Up to Get Into the Flow


   Focus on access
   Stop selecting
   Do some, monitor use, do more
   Programs not projects
   Describe further up the hierarchy
   Emphasize quantity
   Discovery happens elsewhere
   Get funding without selling out



                                                               OCA Oct 17
