Notes

Abstract: This article summarizes major findings of the MetaArchive and AmericanSouth projects, two of the seven projects of the 2001 Mellon Metadata Harvesting Initiative. This article will not deal with the activities undertaken in these projects, or the decisions to conjoin the two projects to form the MetaScholar Initiative, as this information has been reported in detail elsewhere. [Halbert, 2003] Nor will it recount the already public motivations of the Mellon Foundation in funding these and other projects. [Waters, 2001] What will be reported are the general motivations that led to undertaking the MetaArchive and AmericanSouth projects, the questions that the projects set out to answer, and what findings were reached, both expected and unexpected.
