Dear Art Librarians:
For a research study involving digital rights management and academic library electronic resources, I am interested in talking with art librarians who are actively involved with ARTstor.
The purpose of the research is to understand the process by which librarians, publishers and other interested parties develop access and use terms, how specific access and use terms come to be perceived as acceptable or unacceptable by librarians, and how those perceptions may vary across types of libraries. We are looking at ARTstor as an
exemplar of this process.
If you are interested in participating in this research, you will be asked to participate in a phone (preferred) or email interview regarding the process by which you decide that certain access and use terms are acceptable. Your participation will last approximately 45 minutes. This study will result in academic publications; however personal (individual names) will not be used and library and institution names will not be used.
If you would consider participation but have questions, or if you would like to participate, please contact:
Thank you very much for your interest; I look forward to hearing from you!
