  1.   Queries and Discussion
  • Intellectual Property, List of Donors, List of Individual Collections

If adopting authored collections, including our own, should the Committee honor them as gifts to the SAH WiA AG community?  These lists entail time, effort and talent and, though not copyrighted, can be termed as intellectual property.  Should we compose the list of donors, and not only create an integral themed database but retain the original authored resource lists as well?

  • Funding Opportunities for this Project
