DOJ Proposes Injunction on Apple Ebook Practices
by George H. Pike
After having proven that Apple conspired with five major book publishers to fix the prices of ebooks, the Department of Justice (DOJ) seeks to prevent Apple from continuing its anticompetitive practices not only in its ebook sales, but also with its movie, music, and app sales. In a filing with the federal court, the DOJ would prevent Apple from enforcing its existing ebook contracts, ban "agency model" contracts with book publishers for at least 5 years, and ban Apple from entering into "any agreement" with any "content supplier" that would "increase, fix, or set" prices.

Five Ways to Get Your Book Published
by Brandi Scardilli
In the era of user-generated content, anyone can write a book and get it published, whether it's on librarianship, Big Data, or data scientists. There are dozens of companies to help authors find the right editorial services, design assistance, printing, marketing, and distribution for their works. These days, authors don't need a huge publishing house. One of the best ways to get published and get involved in the process is to sign up with a do-it-yourself (DIY) publisher. Be prepared: Though these publishers charge authors for specific services, you'll still end up doing most of the work yourself. But on the plus side, you'll retain creative control of your book.

The Information Advisor's Guide to Internet Research

Edited by Robert Berkman, The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research explores, evaluates, and provides critical analysis of free and fee-based information resources, web-based services, and search strategies to help you maximize your time and keep you up-to-date on the internet's role in research.

IAG

In addition to at least one feature by business specialist Berkman, each issue of The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research includes an in-depth article by Ran Hock, author of The Extreme Searcher book series and well-known seminar speaker, who checks out a major web resource.

Four regular columns are rotated; two appear each issue and give readers suggestions for cool internet tools to check out (Brian Smith McCallum, M.L.S., public and academic librarian); sites to turn to for more scholarly research needs (Briana McGuckin, reference and instructional librarian); sites to go to that provide information for the common good (Susan Fingerman, retired librarian instructor, STEM); and sites that give you “big data” facts and figures on a range of topics (Jackie Shane, former reference librarian).
