Abstract:
This is a submission to the 3rd Annual Social Informatics SIG Research Symposium: The Social Web, Social Computing and the Social Analysis of Computing. This paper describes changes in the configuration of access regimes for scholarly information licensed to libraries and information centers in the United States from late 1960's to the early 2000's. While access regimes are typically thought of as technical systems (e.g., proxy servers, password systems), we conceptualize access regime as amalgams of political, contractual, economic and technical elements that define who can use licensed digitized scholarly information. The paper describes changes in access regimes over three overlapping eras of scholarly information dissemination: (1) early tape based abstracting and indexing services, (2) CD-ROMs, networked CD-ROMS, and early Internet accessible full text journals, and (3) post 1997 full text Internet resources.
