shared digital open access publishing platforms
Joanne A. Schneider commented
I'm interested but concerned that existing commitments to a statewide resource sharing consortia would interfere with a new consortial project.
Perhaps the most interesting possibility here is a collaboration on an Open Journals System OA publishing house. The cost of the hardware is minimal, but there would be some shared administrative costs. Benefit is that a consortium could cheaply become the publisher of choice for a wide variety of scholarly OA journals.
I'm interested, though not quite sure what's involved.
A clear winner. Building a coop like LASR maybe took more time than building a local Dspace, but, again, why should everyone build their own when there are economies to gain and working relationships to build in a coop implementation.
