One of the things that I like about TypePad is its draft posts feature. If I see something worth writing, I can paste in the reference from Net NewsWire and jot down a few ideas. If I don’t have the time or energy to make it into a full post, I can save it as a draft. Then nobody can see it except for me. It’s easy to locate in case I want to revisit the topic later.
The following is from something I read in September on the Virtual Chase.
The problem mentioned in that Scientific American article is just one symptom of a greater disease. Our academic libraries are becoming less open and friendly to people who are not in the inner circle of patrons. Libraries, usually coerced by their vendors and campus IT departments, are under pressure to lock down all their electronic collections and equipment so that they can only be used by that academic institution's students, faculty and staff.
