PoM: Collaborative Adventures: Promoting and Preserving External Partnerships

NEDCC Persistence of Memory Conference
Speaker: Katherine Skinner, Emory University

Networking! (people, not computers)

Milward & Provan, "A Manager's Guide to Choosing and Using Collaborative Networks", 2006

Collaborative management of:
* Accountability
* Legitimacy
* Conflict
* Committment
* Design
-- Distributed, self-governing
-- Centralized, lead organization
-- Centralized, formed management entity

Emerging digital library models: Open Source, OAI, DSpace, Google Print, etc
- all extremely collaborative on a large scale!

Digital preservation models: LOCKSS, MetaArchive, etc

MetaArchive details (6-way collaboration on the history and culture of the American South, done with a contract with the Library of Congress. Nifty-sounding project!)
