Got Government Data? Not Anymore!
by Barbie E. Keiser
Less than 2 years ago (on June 4, 2009, to be precise), Laura Gordon-Murnane wrote an Information Today NewsBreak describing an experiment in making government datasets available to the public, including scientists and researchers, at the then-new Data.gov website. Last week, we learned that this noble project—emblematic of the 21st century approach to information, technology, and society—has become one of the many victims of federal government belt-tightening. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) responded to congressional calls for budget restraint with plans to shutter the administration's transparency programs 2 years after their start.

Library Ebook Lending Under Attack
by Paula J. Hane
Libraries are getting the short end of the stick in the ebook market. The options libraries have are poor and our customers are frustrated. There are numerous restrictions on lending, device incompatibilities, proprietary systems, interface issues, privacy issues, and more. How can librarians work with publishers to build a sustainable ebook model that works for libraries? With the world moving increasingly digital, libraries need to find a way to continue to provide services to their constituencies, to ensure equitable access to information, and to work to develop new electronic content access solutions. There's a growing rift between librarians and publishers—at the very time that we should be sitting down at the table together to work on these issues.
