“The Moral Crisis of the University”

by

Belshazzar’s Feast by Rembrandt
Michael B. Katz is a new discovery for me (h/t Roving Librarian). His scholarship on the history of public education in the U.S.is fascinating, troubling, and revelatory. I’m sure his conclusions are contested–whose aren’t?–but at times the clarity and forcefulness … Continue reading →

This week I learned how little I actually know about Open Access.  However, with all its pros and cons, I firmly believe that Open Access is the way of the future for research.
