Case study in digitizing 100 years of a journal backfile for OA

Rose Holley, Delivering Full Text Collections: The Journal of the Polynesian Society Digital Initiative, a PPT slide presentation at the University of Auckland, February 2007.  Self-archived February 18, 2008. 

Abstract:   Provides an overview of the digitisation of the Journal of the Polynesian Society, which is being processed using TEI XML and delivered in B-Engine at the University of Auckland.

PS:  The project is to digitize the first 100 years of the JPS backfile, from 1892 to 1991.  Current issues will apparently not be OA.
