Building a Digital Library the Commons-based Peer Production Way (10 Oct 2003)
Using Noosphere is not the only way to coordinate a commons-based peer production effort for digital libraries. Whereas Noosphere is "anarchistic", "democratic" alternatives could also be built. However, Noosphere's model of coordination is novel for collaborative systems and could be applied more widely.

I hope the reader has enjoyed this introduction to commons-based peer production for digital libraries and is perhaps motivated to join, begin, or adapt an existing project to include some of the ideas and methods presented here.
