My name is Butch Lazorchak.

I am a graduate student in Library and Information Science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, with an expected graduation date of May 2004.

My research interests include institutional repositories, digital preservation, digital libraries, linguistics, the economics of open source networks, intellectual property issues surrounding digital information, and music metadata. I am currently investigating the Open Archival Information System reference model and determining how it is being applied in the research community.
