ORGANIZATION AND RESOURCES NEEDED:
The committee’s vision of an incremental development of the DML starts with the creation of a small nonprofit organization, referred to here as the DML organization. The DML organization will need a small and dedicated paid staff, including a well-respected mathematician in a senior role, to ensure its development and growth. Other staffing needs may become necessary as the needs and status of the DML evolve, although much of the software development and operations could be contracted out. Ideally, the DML would be attached to and draw support from some host institution (a university, a research laboratory, or other organization) in order to facilitate sharing of services and to reduce overhead. The DML organization could be governed ultimately by the mathematical sciences community through organizations such as the International Mathematical Union and, thence, through their member organizations.
The first and foremost challenge that the DML will face is finding a set of primary funding sources that could support its initial development and early operations (a period of between 5 and 10 years). It is the committee’s hope that the DML would become a self-sustaining entity once some of its key capabilities are established and a potential sustainable business model is chosen from among options.8
For the first few years, perhaps the best approach would be to split operational governance from high-level, longer-term policy governance, because these two tasks will be quite distinct. Both in the short and the longer term, appropriate connections are needed between funding and revenue sources and governance, and these connections may well need to shift over time. Particularly in the early days, a light and agile governance mechanism is crucial. Upon launching the DML effort, there would likely be a coalition of partners with a commitment to the DML concept.
Developing a 21st Century Global Library for Mathematics envisions a combination of machine learning methods and community-based editorial effort that makes a significantly greater portion of the information and knowledge in the global mathematical corpus available to researchers as linked open data through a central organizational entity-referred to in the report as the Digital Mathematics Library.
