I wanted to call attention to a digital scholarship-related post by Terry Reese over on the IT blog. In it, he talks about the importance of open scholarship, and the roles played by libraries and organizations such as the Internet Archive. At the risk of giving away the ending, here’s a brief snippet:
I personally think that this is a very exciting time to be part of the academic community, because you can feel the sea change…scholars are pushing for more open scholarship. And in the library, we need to stand with our faculty, advocate for them, and celebrate our partners successes as we continue to champion for the widest possible access to academic scholarship and discoveries.
