Intellectual Property and Electronic Theses
From the article: "The role of this briefing paper is to raise awareness of the main issues involved when converting paper-based theses into a digital format. This change of media has many implications for the way theses are created, stored, organised, managed and accessed. This briefing paper specifically examines the agreements required by an institution when managing and storing theses in electronic format. This includes existing theses held by institutions in paper format and those presented by students electronically (born digital). These agreements typically involve those which may need to be obtained from the author, the institution or some other third party. A number of sample agreements are presented, which are intended to be adapted to suit an individual institution's circumstances."

"Little did James Miller know that a modest book shelf of a mere 100 titles, perched unpretentiously behind his office desk in 1997, would swell over the course of seven years to well over 4,000 titles. But that's exactly what happened at The Pride Library, an official university research site for gay and lesbian studies. And the size continues to grow."

Online archive provides easy access for Walt Whitman scholars
"It could never match the musty smell and weathered touch of an original 19th-century manuscript. But the cold sterility of a computer screen glare can give instant access to an author's life work. For 10 years, Ken Price, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln English professor, has worked to create The Walt Whitman Archive, an online depository of all the author's works, at whitmanarchive.org.

Library asked to pull 'Birth of a Nation'
"A local activist has asked the Granville County Library system to remove the 1915 silent film 'The Birth of a Nation' from its collection because he fears the film could serve as a recruitment tool for hate groups."
