  1. I tend not to leave a bunch of responses, but I
    browsed some remarks on SPARC Forum at ALA Midwinter:
    Public Access – Federal Research Access Policies and How Theyll Change Your Library | Electronic Resource News.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it just me or do a few of these remarks come across like they are left by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing at other places, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Would you list of the complete urls of your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
