Papers consist of reports, proposals and correspondence, 1992-1999, of the Museum Educational Site Licensing Project that outline the methodology for, and provide summary information about, the Project and its results during its Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded phase. Included are the grant proposal, written and submitted by Howard Besser, Principal Investigator, to the Mellon Foundation requesting funds to study the economic aspects of the MESL Project; the museum and university technical reports, which describe the technical issues involved in the dissemination of MESL content and report on the experience; a draft of MESL Perspectives, published simultaneously with the final report, and providing "unofficial insights" into the Project; a draft of the final report submitted to the Mellon Foundation; and two versions of the final report, The Cost of Digital Image Distribution: The Social and Economic Implications of the Production, Distribution and Usage of Image Data, authored by Howard Besser and Robert Yamashita (Project Manager). The final report originally appeared in July 1998 and was reprinted in June 1999.
