The function of this assignment is to have you critically evaluate other digital libraries, and identify aspects of those other DLs that may be applicable to our course project.

Every student must identify one digital library for discussion. This DL should be chosen with an eye to informing our course project: in selecting a DL, choose one where some aspect of it (though not necessarily all of it) may inform the development of our course project.

Claim your DL on the course wiki. This is only to prevent duplication; I want everyone to bring a different DL to the table. (So there's an advantage to claiming your DL early. Not that there's any shortage of DLs out there.)

Every student must write up a brief set of discussion points (recommendation: one side of one page, bullet items) about your chosen DL. These discussion points should highlight what aspects of your DL may inform the development of our course project. In other words, why did you choose it? What do you want your working group to get out of looking at your DL?

Each member of a working group
