Jonathan H. Harwell, Rollins College
The story covered in Tom Gilson’s newsflash from last Saturday has remained the hot topic this week. In case you haven’t heard, the copyright case brought by Cambridge, Oxford, and Sage against Georgia State University regarding e-reserves has been decided. The conventional wisdom is that the libraries are largely the winners, but there’s something here to displease everybody, and there’s plenty that all of us need to understand.
Several sources have given rundowns, including Kevin Smith, as Tom points out. Jonathan Miller has a list. I’ll add a note from the Library Loon, and be sure to see both of Jennifer Howard’s articles in the Chronicle (the first and the second). There’s also Meredith Schwarz’ updated synopsis in Library Journal.
Bonus hot topic: E-books wanna be free. Unglue.it launched yesterday. Check it out.
