Study noted number, titles, types and URLs of projects; type of access; terminology; level of access from the library’s homepage; whether content was restricted, and if so, was it explained; whether metadata was included, and if so, was it searchable; was the project developed through a partnership; and was the project affiliated with a library unit.
