HathiTrust Lawsuit Decision Reaffirms Libraries in the Digital Age
by Karen Coyle
"I cannot imagine a definition of fair use that world not encompass the transformative uses made by Defendants' MDP [Mass Digitization Project] and would require that I terminate this invaluable contribution to the progress of science and the cultivation of the arts that at the same time effectuates the ideals espoused by the ADA [Americans with Disabilities Act]." This statement appeared in the opinion of Judge Harold Baer Jr. of the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, in his decision in Authors Guild v. HathiTrust.
Open Access Week Preview
by Abby Clobridge
Organizations around the world are gearing up to celebrate Open Access Week (www.openaccessweek.org), officially held Oct. 22-28, 2012. For most institutions, Open Access Week is a way to increase the visibility of open access among scientists, researchers, librarians, university faculty members, and students. At the same time, it also provides opportunities for open access practitioners to exchange knowledge and share ideas. Open access means free, unrestricted access to and reuse rights for scholarly research, either through publication in open access journals or by posting copies of the peer-reviewed version of articles into open access repositories. This year's theme for the week is Set the Default to Open Access, intending to make open access the norm in journal publishing rather than the exception. An increasing number of libraries, publishers, research funding agencies, NGOs, and other organizations are hosting workshops, speeches, and other types of events; launching advocacy campaigns; kicking off new initiatives; and participating in ongoing shows of support.

Pew Research Center Provides Research and Data on Campaign 2012
by Paula J. Hane
As Barack Obama and Mitt Romney prepared for their first debate on Oct. 3, 2012, the issues at the top of the voters' agenda have changed little since 2008, according to a recent survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. Conducted Sept. 12-16 among 3,019 adults, including 2,424 registered voters, the results show that 87% of registered voters say that the economy will be very important to their vote, while 83% say jobs will be very important to their vote.

The Accidental Data Scientist
Big Data Applications and Opportunities for Librarians and Information Professionals
by Amy Affelt
foreword by Thomas H. Davenport

Librarians and information professionals have always worked with data in order to meet the information needs of their constituents, thus "Big Data" is not a new concept for them though it is spawning new approaches along with a language all its own.

In The Accidental Data Scientist, Amy Affelt shows information professionals how to leverage their skills and training to master emerging tools, techniques, and vocabulary by embracing their inner Data Scientist.
