ATN Publisher Report & Issues: Ed McCoyd • International Interest in ATN • Accommodating Faculty with Disabilities • CSU Membership (Jeff and Mark) • AHEAD Review of the ATN DSS Membership Agreement (Ron Stewart) • New Publisher Exploration and Status (Rick Bowes)
Expanded Services • Spring 2010 • DSS to DSS Exchange – ATN staff are developing the DSS to DSS post-production file exchange component. Some of the issues that need to be resolved include: • Will the exchange allow partial files to be listed or only complete files? • Will the ATN store the exchange files on a server for fulfillment or will files need to be uploaded by the providing member each time they are requested by another member? • How will file evaluation guidelines be developed, administered and enforced?
Expanded Services • Spring 2010 • Federated Search • APH is in the process of upgrading their IT platform that supports the LOUIS database of alternate materials (October Completion). • RFB&D working with ATN IT regarding a suitable search interface.
Training: Production Options after Files are Received from Publishers Proposed Agenda (Julie K. Balassa) • Format received (PDF, Word and Other?) • not available, receive desk copy • Pre-conversion production needs - PDF • quick and dirty if text-backed - paginate, auto-tag, reduce file size • more intensive if text-backed – set reading order, manually tag, add headings, touch up text (including punctuation), create “extras” file, etc. • image-backed – must OCR first • Pre-conversion production needs – Word • quick and dirty – usually doesn’t exist • more intensive – break pages and paginate, locate/add sections, remove/add headings and styles, edit/add punctuation, create “extras” file, etc. • Conversion (format? tools?) • Delivery (medium? Method?) • Storage (medium? method?)
