Library News - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 19:30
Through the economic and structural reconfiguration made possible by the Internet, the potential for new modes of publishing scholarship have emerged. However, there has also been much alarm in the humanities disciplines, in particular, at the proposed changes to economic models that could underwrite transitions to new models of publishing, such as open access.

The role of anatomists in the destruction of victims of National Socialism

Library News - Mon, 03/23/2015 - 21:30
