University of Michigan staff began scoping services to be offered by Michigan Publishing using the mPach platform, and considering arrangements that will need to be made to support use by HathiTrust member institutions or other organizations.
While open access literature is free to users and is generally less expensive than traditional publishing methods, it isn't always free of charge to authors, who pay article publication fees, commonly called "page charges."
Staff at the University of Michigan defined the preservation levels to be associated with content submitted through mPach. Integrated and supplemental materials that meet existing HathiTrust specifications will be preserved at the bit level with format migration.
Staff at the University of Michigan refined plans for storing data that will enable linking between records for individual articles in the HathiTrust catalog, the fulltext view of articles in the HathiTrust PageTurner, a journal-level record for articles in the HathiTrust catalog, and information about the journal in the HathiTrust Collection Builder app
University of Michigan staff presented on mPach’s publication and preservation model in separate sessions with staff from the Texas A&M University Library, University Press, and Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP). Michigan and IODP staff discussed possible uses of mPach by IODP.
