Categories applicable to conference publishing best practices - proposed:

  • Access Authentication (some overlap particularly for licensed conferences with the PL, but emphasis on no passwords or other restrictive practices, for instance) - Scott Warren
  • Copyright issues (good match, and best practices could include Creative Commons-type licensing, license to publish, etc.) - Jill Dixon
  • Content considerations (similar to cover-to-cover digitization category on the PL, but includes things like color and presentation captures (audio, powerpoint, video, visualizations etc.)) - Jan Fransen
  • Perpetual Access (good overlap, and there are other options to consider as well) - Tracy Gabridge
  • Purchase and Distribution models (category is the same, but the treatment may be quite different, include open access, publishing partnership models, etc.) - Hema Ramachandran
  • Interlibrary loan/electronic reserves (for licensed resources) - Jill Dixon
  • Publishing formats and media - Ed Eckel
    • When possible, online access is preferred to CD-ROM access, which can be inconvenient to patrons who can not make it to the physical library. Examples of conferences that tend to just release CDs include Society of Plastics Engineers ANTEC conferences, and many paper engineering conferences (such as TAPPI). - Ed E.
  • Indexing - Ed Eckel
    • Providers/vendors should allow or encourage indexing by Internet search engines such as Google,, and Scirus. In addition, good metadata should be used to help the content be findable (if not accessible) via web search engines. - Ed E.
  • Peer review
  • Naming consistency - Tracy Gabridge
  • Retractions and Corrections (substantially the same)
  • Statistics (for licensed resources)
  • Quality of files
  • Linking to Content (substantial overlap) - Ronke Lawal
