Denise Troll Covey focuses on three efforts at Carnegie Mellon University to acquire copyright permission to digitize and provide open access to books - that is, to make books freely available on the Internet for public use. Anecdotes illuminate the effort required and problems encountered in trying to acquire copyright permission for open access, from the difficulty of determining copyright status and ownership and locating copyright owners to the questions, concerns, record-keeping methods, and changing contractual practices that constrain publishers' embrace of open access.

Che Wah Ho describes the CHANT database begun in 1988 to build up a comprehensive database of all ancient Chinese texts up to the sixth century AD. The project is near completion and the entire database, which includes both traditional and excavated materials, will be released on the CHANT Web site (www.chant.org) in 2002. With more than a decade of experience in establishing an electronic Chinese literary database, the project managers have gained much insight useful to the development of similar databases in the future. THe project made use of the best available versions of all texts, noting variant readings in footnotes. The biggest problem encountered was the inclusion of rare and obsolete Chinese characters. Since starting to build the database, information technology has advanced so rapidly that the technical devices already in use in the database were upgraded. To maintain a competitive edge over free online Chinese databases, the project needs to continue developing new databases employing the existing ones.
