So now that we’ve recovered from the Charleston Conference, Thanksgiving, etc., and hopefully caught up with our families and our careers as academic semesters wind down, we’re catching up on the past few weeks of news.  The following items might seem a bit random, but what else is new?

Amherst College is launching an open-access scholarly press.  Here’s their website, which features a video interview with Bryn Geffert, Amherst College Librarian, who has spurred the project.
