We’re back in familiar territory for me on this one, though it’s less on my mind at a community college. Our faculty aren’t the ones doing a lot of the publishing, but we certainly benefit from others publishing OA. One of the main places my mind goes when I consider OA and this ideal future […]

Back in familiar territory for me, as a librarian. Thus the coziness of the post. I read through and listened to a smattering of the links for this week.

When I realized one of the authors of this first article is Jeffrey Pomerantz, I laughed out loud. Dr. Pomerantz was my thesis advisor when I was in the library science program at the University of North Carolina.
