Abstract

The Scholarly Communication Center (SCC) within Rutgers University Libraries has launched several important digital library projects. A major objective of the SCC has been to publish unique information sources on the Web that are not likely to be published elsewhere. Publishing bibliographic databases on the Web can significantly enhance access to an original collection of research literature and further enrich the library collection. We have found that reusable technology platforms offer a special opportunity for research libraries to fill a new role. Through the platform technology and a well defined process, libraries are able quickly and effectively to publish databases on the Web.
