An interesting new project:

Duke and Dartmouth Will Partner in Planning for the Management of Institutional Digital Assets

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded Duke University $41,300 for a collaborative planning project with Dartmouth College to design institutional strategies and policies for managing scholarly and administrative assets in digital form.

Rather than looking for technological solutions, Duke and Dartmouth will focus on developing a clearer definition of all of the pieces that must be integrated into a carefully conceived and crafted plan, or “road map,” that will lead to a comprehensive digital asset strategy.

Something to watch, in light of the Minds of Carolina project & other work on institutional repositories going on around here.
