KnowledgeSpeak also notes that “IEEE Access, … recently published its 1,000th article in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Since its launch in 2013, IEEE Access, which incorporates articles from all IEEE fields of interest and emphasizes applications-oriented and interdisciplinary articles, has grown immensely.

Library Technology Guides notes the launching of  Academic Publishing Weekly “the latest newsletter from Choice  …  Academic Publishing Weekly is curated by the editors of Choice. From mergers and acquisitions to research reports, major product launches and significant “people on the move” items, the newsletter aggregates the latest updates from around the industry in a convenient, single-source format, emailed to opt-in subscribers…”

According to Publishing Perspectives “on Thursday (November 10), the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled that public libraries can lend ebooks, provided that authors are fairly compensated.

The decision also said that ebook lending under the “one copy, one user” model is consistent with a 2006 EU directive on rental and lending rights of IP…”

However, “the Federation of European Publishers argues that a recent EU court decision in favor of ebook lending through public libraries could negatively affect ebook sales…”

infoDOCKET reports that “the opening of the At-Risk World Heritage and Cyber Archaeology project at Geisel Library Monday morning marked the initiation of the Digital Media Lab’s first virtual reality experience. The Cave Automatic Virtual Environment, or CAVE kiosk, located in Geisel East, represents the halfway point in a two-year cyber-archaeology program that combines the efforts of UCSD, UCLA, UC Merced and UC Berkeley.

infoDOCKET also notes from a Post by Jennifer González on the In Custodia Legis Blog From the Law Library of Congress that two years ago “we added historical Statutes at Large to our Digitized Material page. Years 1789-1950 have been available there in a large PDF download, but we have been working steadily to add more functionality to the website.

We continue to add details to each Congress page that show the titles and dates of each statute, along with a smaller download for just that statute. Currently, we have years 1826-1919 (Congresses 19-65) available with chapter details. Years 1919-1923 (Congresses 66 and 67) will be posted by the end of 2016. And then we will continue to fill in the gaps in our coverage…”

According to KnowledgeSpeak “stakeholders including scholarly publishers, academic libraries, funders, and researchers have joined forces to develop a framework for advanced, robust, sustainable, collaborative models for the Canadian dissemination of the scholarly record. The Canadian Scholarly Publishing Working Group recently held a full-day meeting in Ottawa continuing its exploration into sustainable collaborative journal and article publishing models, followed by an examination of needs related to research data, monographs and new forms of scholarship.
