At the last meeting, 9 December at the Horniman Museum, we discussed digital repositories in museums. This came about because we recently had a visit at the British Museum from a librarian at the National Museums of Scotland which has a repository. I also brought up the possibility of having a joint repository for the MLAG institutions. At the moment there are not many museum depositories for publications so to keep the discussion going I have posted links to three I know of including the NMS. I have also posted a link to arXiv the well established (since 1991) subject depository hosted by Cornell University which currently has Open access to 645,461 e-prints in the mathematical sciences. This could be seen as a possible model of large scale inter-institution collaboration.
