Recommendation regarding bepress offer for IR support at Cornell - 9 July 2015

In May 2015, bepress made an offer to the Cornell University Library for a campus-wide Digital Commons license. The core of this offer was the establishment of a fourth Digital Commons repository (intended for “everything else”) for a nmuch less expensive annual fee, the ability to add more repositories at the same annual fee, and the creation of an aggregate site for content from all Cornell Digital Commons repositories. It was the opinion of this subgroup, however, that migrating eCommons content from DSpace to a new Digital Commons repository was not presently a good choice for that content nor was it supportive of LEG's long-term commitment to HYDRA. Advantages and disadvantages of the offer are briefly summarized in the following report.
