RLG News appearance

I'm in the latest issue of RLG News, talking about initiatives at the University Libraries in the area of publishing and open content. Check it out:

The part of my quote that explains how what we do relates to Google et al was chopped off, so i am afraid it makes me sound like I am blathering on in ignorance of those larger initiatives. The sentence that got left out was, " We see the interest in the above-mentioned initiatives as validating, informing and adding momentum to our efforts." So there you go. Thanks to my supervisor, Barb Stelmasik, for crediting me with this line, which I had contributed to her report to RLG.

Presentation on Digital Libraries

For the second year in a row, Shane Nackerud asked me to speak to his LIS753: Internet Fundamentals class at the College of St. Catherine, specifically on the topic of digital libraries. I decided to do a whole new version of the talk this year. It can be found here.
