The FCC's New Open Internet Order Faces the Realities of Implementation
by Nancy K. Herther
The Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) 2010 Open Internet Order was intended to prevent broadband ISPs from blocking or interfering with traffic on the web to ensure the internet remained a level playing field for any user. In a January 2014 ruling, a U.S. appeals court said that the FCC used a questionable legal framework to craft the Open Internet Order and lacked the authority to implement and enforce its rules. The FCC went back to the drawing board and released a new version of its order in March 2015. However, the battle--both in the U.S. and abroad--is hardly yet won.

Public Libraries Embrace Self-Publishing Services
by Brandi Scardilli
For authors who want to self-publish their books, the public library may be the best place to find services that can help. One such place is the Seattle Public Library (SPL), which offers a variety of self-publishing initiatives. David Christensen, virtual and instruction services librarian, has been part of the team managing these initiatives since 2013. Don't try to replicate other libraries' self-publishing programs, which may not be a good fit with yours, he says. "Start small and figure out what works well for you."
