This section features case studies of established and evolving partnerships. Partnerships are invited to submit descriptions of their own initiatives that highlight specific aspects of partnering (for example, financial arrangements, management and governance structures, etc.). Recommended additions may be sent to section editor Raym Crow (crow AT arl DOT org).

Case Study: Global, Area, and International Archive (GAIA) Publications, University of California

The Global, Area, and International Archive (GAIA) provides a peer-reviewed publishing channel for small-market books in international and area studies, including first monographs and multiple-author editions. The initiative illustrates a publishing approach that supports both open-access digital versions and priced print editions, while distributing labor and financial risk equitably across the partners.

Case Study: Lexicons of Early Modern English, University of Toronto

Lexicons of Early Modern English (LEME) provides a historical database of glossaries, monolingual, bilingual, and polyglot dictionaries, lexical encyclopedias, and lexically-valuable treatises from the Early Modern English period, 1480--1702. LEME comprises over one-half a million word entries from 160 searchable lexicons.

Case Study: Project Euclid, Cornell University and Duke University Press

Ten years ago the Cornell University Library, with the encouragement of the university’s department of mathematics and statistics, undertook an initiative designed to provide small, independent mathematics journals with an online publishing option. The majority of non-commercial journals in mathematics had yet to establish a footprint on the Internet by 2000. By early in the decade, however, academic libraries were beginning to favor internet delivery over paper editions for most STM serials.
