The List

In the process of prototyping a method for calculating how much libraries are investing in Open, we have developed a list of investments. There remains work to be done to figure out what should count as an actual investment in Open, and the process by which such decisions will be made.

We’ve posted a sortable and commentable list on-line for those who wish to discuss.
