Worth a look: The Fix Ins’t In (regarding SciHub)

Another interesting post relating to open access in Inside Higher Ed:  The Fix Isn’t In | Library Babel Fish

It is by Barbara Fister and discusses some of her thoughts, as a librarian, on Sci-Hub.

Thanks again to Art Shapiro for pointing me to this.

I am still not sure how I feel about SciHub.  I like that people can get access to more literature.  But I would prefer that that happened by legal means and I think I agree with Fister that this is “not the fix for the mess we’re in.”

Anyway – the post is worth a look.
