Development Plan for

Content Sources

So far we have been gathering resources in an experimental manner to develop our procedures for managing a digital library and to provide a means whereby TAMPU people can discuss how our Resource Center should develop. We have been careful to identify our sources and to give full credit to the writers and publishers whose material we are gathering. We are encouraged in this by the practice of all internet search engines to "cache" content so that they can index it and so they can provide it if the original source moves it or removes it from the web. However, we do need to develop our policy on this and we need to make sure it is legally sound. When this policy is developed, some of our content may be removed from the web. It is expected that some media, especially local newspapers, will become "partners" to our effort and will therefore be happy with our use of their material.
