Cites & Insights 13:7 (July 2013) now available

Cites & Insights 13:7 (July 2013) is now available for downloading at http://citesandinsights.info

The regular PDF version (two columns, 8.5×11″, designed for print) is 26 pages.

The “online version” (also PDF, one column, 6×9″, designed and optimized for online reading) is 52 pages.

Note that this is another case where the online version will offer a better display of one article (the first one) because of graphs.

The issue includes:

Libraries
The Big Deal and the Damage Done  pp. 1-6

If you’re in an academic library, you need to be aware of this study, now available in three versions: A regular PDF (no DRM) for $9.99, a paperback for $16.50 and, especially suitable for library schools and any library wishing to make it broadly available, a campus license PDF version for $40 that explicitly allows mounting the book on a campus ebook or other server that allows multiple simultaneous access or downloading by authorized students and other users.

This article includes Chapter 1 of the book and a segment of the concluding chapter. It includes eight graphs that will be easier to read in the one-column version, although they’re all entirely readable in the two-column version.

Technology  pp. 6-10

A dozen little essays about a dozen specific technologies.

The CD-ROM Project  pp. 10-16

Moving toward the finish line: Possibly the last installment in this series, mostly a set of disappointments with two bright spots.

Media
50 Movie Comedy Kings, Part 2  pp. 16-21

More old movies and more examples of the extent to which comedy flicks are context-sensitive.

The Back

More miscellaneous snarkiness and sometimes-pointed mini-essays.
