Lots of you may have already read the LA Times editorial entitled Chokehold on Knowledge (the LA Times requires registration, so this may or may not work). I first read about it through an excellent blog written by law professor Jeff Cooper, Cooped Up. His post quotes from the editorial and also mentions an incident this fall where OMB "changed" the record.

Bibliolatry mentioned the conflict today as well.  She referred to this article about OMB's draft regulation. A PDF version of the draft regulation is here. The article mentions that it will be posted to the Federal Register soon, so folks should send in their comments within 30 days after publication.  I'll try to post when it's official in the FR.

I spotted this last week in a link from Library Juice:  Apparently ALA has a program called Lawyers for Libraries that sponsors training for lawyers who want to to get involved in First Amendment issue and specifically in defending libraries.  They have training sessions scheduled in February in Washington, D.C. and in Chicago in May. Five hundred dollars plus airfare and hotel seems a bit much for an evening and one day of training, but then I'm just a poor librarian.  Unfortunately, there might be some public interest lawyers who can't afford that much either. Librarians can only attend if they are accompanied by an attorney because of space limitations. ALA plans to schedule more training next year.

I don't know if anyone's missed me or not (thanks, Morgan, for the e-mail today), but I've just not had much I wanted to comment on lately.  However, a few things have accumulated over the past few weeks that I'm going to try to post today.  Thanks for your patience.
