This will affect my book sales – everyone will look at it in repository

Copyright may well not allow deposit. Electronic access may increase sales – raises visibility, screen reading is difficult. E.g. Professor MacKay Without the Hot Air.

The same could be said about public libraries – there is no evidence to suggest that public libraries affect book sales. People still like to buy books.

Encourage the author to deposit one or more chapters, rather than the whole book.
