Poem, short story, extract as resource types
For our humanities academics these resource types would be a useful addition.
This is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog.
Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.

I would consider the inclusion of "Extract" as a new resource type to be more urgent, following the changes in the CLA license last August.
Academics are increasingly aware that they are able to digitise up to 10% of a book to provide as a scanned reading. Often, this 10% will not refer just to a single chapter, but a range of pages that might stretch over two, or even three chapters. Or the 10% extract could be from a range of non-contiguous pages.
Similarly the extract to be scanned might be a range of pages that comprises less than a Chapter! So having a resource type available that accurately describes the resource would be useful. Some academics don't want to describe a bookmark as a Chapter when it is not a chapter.
