"Reflections on Library Licensing"

Ann Shumelda Okerson has published "Reflections on Library Licensing" in Information Standards Quarterly.

Here's an excerpt:

The way libraries acquire basic content for their readers has been completely upended in the last two decades. In this rapid electronic environment, content providers are pressed to enhance and update existing products or to produce competitive new products, with ever-increasing functionality and with great uncertainty about what users will pay for and how much they will pay. At the same time, numerous new producers are entering the electronic marketplace. We are living in an information Wild West, which can put libraries and publishers face to face on Main Street at high noon, often without the third-party subscription agents or book jobbers we used to depend on. This article discusses how we got to this place; whether one should prefer copyright or license; the differing view of rights by authors, publishers, libraries and their end users; different types of licenses; and current issues in licensing.

"A Proposal for Regularly Updated Review/Survey Articles: ‘Living Reviews’"

David L. Mobley and Daniel M. Zuckerman have self-archived "A Proposal for Regularly Updated Review/Survey Articles: 'Living Reviews'."

Here's an excerpt:

We propose and encourage the publication of review/survey articles that will be updated regularly, both in traditional journals and novel venues. We call these "living reviews." This idea naturally builds on the dissemination and archival capabilities present in the modern internet, and indeed living reviews exist already in some forms. Living review articles allow authors to maintain over time the relevance of non-research scholarship that requires a significant investment of effort. We also envision living reviews leading to the creation of a new category of review—review papers published as living reviews in a purely electronic format without space constraints. This will also permit more pedagogical scholarship and clearer treatment of technical issues that remain obscure in a brief treatment.

Because there will be a published concise version of all this stuff—out this summer from ALA's Library Technology Reports, working title "Idealism and Opportunism: The State of Open Access Journals"—I went through 2,200-odd additional DOAJ journals with English as one of the language options (but not the first one), and was able to add 1,507 more entries to my DOAJ master spreadsheet, which now includes 6,490 journals qualifying for full analysis and 811 that don't. This essay offers some summary information on the 1,507 added journals and some overall notes on the full DOAJ set-including some new and replacement tables (there may be errors in tables 2.66 b and c and 2.67 b and c in earlier issues).

"Adjunct No More: Promoting Scholarly Publishing as a Core Service of Academic Libraries"

Isaac Gilman has self-archived "Adjunct No More: Promoting Scholarly Publishing as a Core Service of Academic Libraries."

Here's an excerpt:

For small academic libraries, which are largely absent from ARL-dominated literature on library publishing (with some notable exceptions 14), the decision to pivot towards publishing services leads to several key questions: What skills and resources are needed in order to ensure quality and avoid Daniel Coit Gilman's disdained practice of "printing without publishing"?15) In what ways should the traditional work of the library change in order to accommodate this shift in focus? At the same time, in what ways can the work of publication be connected with traditional work and skills found within the library?
