My new favorite graduate student is really digging Open Access now. They sent me this post from SlashDot about University of California OA initiative. Well, at least there’s some excitement.

Other news from the depths of limnology. I’ve been tinkering with Joomla and a nice extension called DocMan in an effort to solve our absurd digital reprints problem. In case I haven’t mentioned it, our current system uses EndNote as a catalog and requires one to be on the LAN to access any prints. Come on people, why hasn’t this been changed by now.

To be fair though, the solution was much more difficult than expected. This is especially true when there is limited tech support and a budget of nothing.
