FCC Approves Net Neutrality
by George H. Pike
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) gave a huge victory to Net Neutrality advocates by voting in favor of sweeping new rules that change the way internet services are regulated. The rules would allow the FCC to regulate ISPs in a similar manner to telecommunication companies, including by restricting their ability to prioritize or give favorable treatment to certain categories of content. Opponents of Net Neutrality, however, have vowed to block the FCC action in either the courts or in Congress.

University Libraries Offer an Alternative to Traditional Publishing
by Brandi Scardilli
Maybe you're a professor who has an idea for a journal you'd like to start at your university. Or maybe you're a graduate student looking to prove yourself by publishing your research. Or maybe you're a college librarian hoping to start a newsletter that will raise your library's visibility on campus. No matter the reason, you're writing something that needs to find an audience. Why not publish it at the library? As digital tools get easier to use, many institutions are starting their own publishing programs in an effort to offer more varied services to their communities.
