My name's Alex. I'm new to this group, new to Mendeley, and a somewhat apprentice in-archive researcher. I was hoping that some of you may have some advice and/or be able to point me in the right direction to fulfill a goal of mine.
Specifically, I was wondering if any of you have any experience persuading a university library to digitize an archival collection or pursuing funding towards that same end?
Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.
P.s. I have been able to get scans of small portions of the aforementioned collection via my university's limited inter-library loan privileges, but, even with the extension of those privileges for the upcoming semester, I will still not get very far with a collection of this size (~13 linear feet).
This is now an "Open" group. It collects published resources relating to academic writing and research -- including "how to" guides for academic writers (both students and faculty), as well as studies about/on the processes of research and of writing about research.
