As Seen on Twitter: February 2018

The ATLA Twitter feed is filled with news on ATLA events and product updates as well as stories that have relevance to the work of libraries and librarians.

Here are some highlights from last month’s @YourATLA Twitter feed:


” We are pleased to announce that our ATLA Publications are Moving to Open Access. https://newsletter.atla.com/2018/openaccess-publications/

” Interesting read – are we practicing what we preach when it comes to open access? Over ¼ of research about open access is published behind a paywall. https://osf.io/preprints/lissa/ybdr8/


” Excellent new blog post from Library Publishing Coalition fellow Reggie Raju on predatory publishing from the perspective of the Global South. A must read. https://librarypublishing.org/predatory-publishing-global-south-perspective


” We continue Fair Use Week by highlighting importance of fair use to creation of new knowledge. New infographic from ARL illustrates how fair use advances innovation, creativity and scholarship, allowing new knowledge to be created and shared. http://www.arl.org/component/content/article/6/4475
