Europe Struggles With Licensing Text and Data Mining
by Marydee Ojala
You could characterize Licences for Europe, the European Commission's Working Group 4 on text and data mining (WG4), either as a major meeting of the minds or as wishful thinking that scientists, librarians, publishers, and the entertainment industry could all just get along. Apparently, the wishful thinking characterization won the day with those wishes not granted as representatives of the library, research, and technology communities formally withdrew from the process just prior to the fourth scheduled meeting on May 29, 2013.

Top Mobile Apps for Productivity
by Paula J. Hane
In last month's Spotlight article, I highlighted some browser extensions that I find to be very useful. The article has proven popular with readers, and I've even benefitted from readers' suggestions. So, now I'd like to cover some of the mobile apps that I've found to be the most helpful. I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone running Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), and the apps I'm including here are available for Android devices (at the Google Play Store), and some are also available for Apple iOS at the Apple iTunes store. I trust you will find these to be handy and serve as a starting point to look for others. (If you have others in your toolkit that you'd like to share, let me know.)
