Book of the Week – Global Copyright: Three Hundred Years Since the Statute of Anne, from 1709 to Cyberspace

Hello everyone! Beginning today (Monday, 14 February – HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY) the Against the Grain News Channel will post a Book of the Week! We at ATG headquarters receive many books for review but our Book of the Week will not necessarily be a book that we received for review. How will we select the Book of the Week? Anyone can nominate a candidate for the Book of the Week. Just send suggestions to either Leah Hinds or Katina Strauch at hindsl@gmail.com or kstrauch@comcast.net  Some of the guidelines:
 
1) The book should be relevant to us in acquisitions of collection development or scholarly communication.
2) More than likely the book will be non-fiction but we are not against fiction if if’s relevant.
3) The book doesn’t  have to be recently published, just important to us in acquisitions, collection development, or scholarly communication!
Send us your nominations anytime with a brief (100 word explanation!.)
 
Thanks! Katina and Leah
