    Economic Factors of Managing Digital Content and Establishing Digital Libraries

    There are several aspects to the effective utilization of resources in
    relation to digital information. The immediate start-up costs of either
    creating or purchasing digital content; the further implementation costs
    for establishing a digital library or even just basic access to bought
    resources; which are followed by the costs implicit in managing and
    maintaining a digital resource in the longer term. Hand-in-hand with
    resource expenditure is the value and benefit derived from the resource
    itself, and how these are measured and offset against costs.

    Papers are invited for this issue of JoDI that can deliver new insights and
    research findings related to the economic factors of managing digital
    content and establishing digital libraries.
