Library Crowdfunding Site Offers OA Digital Collections

REVEAL DIGITAL launched Independent Voices, a crowdfunding website for open access (OA) digital collections that introduces four inaugural project concepts. Librarians can visit the site to prioritize and select the digital projects they’d like to see realized, and then track each project as it moves toward its goal. More project concepts will be posted in early July.

“In contrast to mass digitization efforts and commercially driven projects, we are putting complete control of collection creation in the hands of the libraries,” says Jeff Moyer, REVEAL DIGITAL’s founder.

The company’s business model allows the costs associated with producing a collection to define its funding threshold, and the collection becomes OA when that threshold is reached.
