Hi all,

Yes we have looked at the census as well for this purpose. Great to hear it
can be used.
I do believe it needs some thinking how to best approach this. What kind of
questions should be asked? And should it be done on collection level or
institutional? As Lieke said, I think it is good to think about this first,
and then see if the census software is suitable for our purpose, and not
the other way around.

Are there people on this list particularly interested in working on these
requirements and questions? Let me know and we can set up a separate call
to further discuss.
Michael Edson also pointed us to this 'how open is it' scorecard coming
from the scientific sector/Open Access field. Think it is a good source to
begin with: http://www.plos.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/hoii-guide.pdf

Looking forward hearing from you.
