Berkeley Scholarly Publishing Statement of Principles

Der Fakultätssenat der University of California at Berkeley hat im März ein Scholarly Publishing Statement of Principles verabschiedet mit folgender interessanten Notiz zu Bibliotheken (Frage: Hat Ihre Bibliothek eine solche Unterstützung, offiziell oder ungeschrieben ?)

Support the Library: Libraries around the world are beginning to take a hard line when negotiating contracts with publishers and societies that put profits above scholarly communication. The faculty and administration of the University of California, Berkeley will support the Library’s efforts to curtail unsustainable pricing structures even if this sometimes means losing access to titles.
