ATG Hot Topic of the Week: Open & Equitable Access

Jonathan H. Harwell, Rollins College

Oh hi!  Two quick hits this week…

  1. If you haven’t already found the petition to President Obama to “require free access over the Internet to scientific journal articles arising from taxpayer-funded research,” which is getting lots of attention around the Interwebs, it’s over here. Bonus petition for you petition collectors:  on Amazon funding ALECHere you go.
  2. And be sure to check out the American Libraries supplement, “E-content:  The digital dialogue.”  Here’s an online version via Zmags…I’m thinking it might be easier to read in print.  Go figure.

UPDATE: Tweets & news outlets are reporting now that Jeff Bezos has just announced that Amazon is not renewing its ALEC membership.
