When it comes to our careers and the laws that affect them, we librarians are not a passive bunch. One of the things about this profession that has always made me proud is the fact that not only do we stay vigilant when it comes to current events, but that we are often on the front lines when it comes to advocating for information rights and access. Today's highlights feature examples of the types of issues that grab our interest and motivate us to stand up and speak out. There are no slouches in this industry when it co,es to fighting the good fight!

Standing Up for Open Access

Advocacy groups are coming together to voice support for open access to government information. Over 60 have now joined in the chorus! The American Association of Law Libraries is proudly among them. Sabrina Pacifici gives us the lowdown along with some excellent links to help us get our heads around the issues and AALL's stance. Take a stand at: AALL joins 60 advocacy groups calling for open access info on government websites.

Not-So-Open Law

One of the issues that motivates us is the ability of the public to access essential government and legal information. As such, we are seldom bystanders when it comes to the battle over information ownership and its corresponding rights. Copyright is clearly a big concern for us and so we keep a close eye on the cases involving rights to public information. Bob Ambrogi brings us some important news on a recent case that threatens our interests.
