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.

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).
