Cites & Insights 14:8 (August 2014) available

Cites & Insights 14:8 (August 2014) is now available for downloading at http://citesandinsights.info/civ14i8.pdf

The two-column print-oriented issue is 32 pages long. A single-column 6×9″ version designed for online/tablet reading is also available, at http://citesandinsights.info/civ14i8on.pdf   (The single-column version is 61 pages long.)

This issue includes the following:

The Front: Once More with [Big] Dealing   pp. 1-2

If you read the June 2014 issue, you may be aware that “Big-Deal Serial Purchasing: Tracking the Damage” wasn’t available when I thought it would be.

It’s available now; this brief essay offers the link to the ALA Store page for the Library Technology Reports issue and notes the complementary book for those academic librarians with deeper interests.

I believe every academic library should pay attention to this issue of LTR. If your library subscribes, it should be available now (electronically) or in a few days (in print form). If it doesn’t, you should buy the issue as a separate. Some of you really would find Beyond the Damage: Circulation, Coverage and Staffing useful as well.

Words: Doing It Yourself  pp. 2-18

Notes on self-publishing and whether or not it makes sense for you (or for your library to assist with).

Intersections: Access and Ethics 3  pp. 18-32

A range of commentaries having to do with open access and ethics over the past 18 months or so–and a couple of brief followups on previous essays. (You may notice that one Very Large Journal Publisher doesn’t show up much in this essay. Its time will come.)

What’s not here: the list of C&I supporters and sponsors. I’ll add the three names (yes, three) in a later issue.
