The Week In Links – June 20

What has been happening in the world of Open Access in the last week?

The Guardian reports that top universities are paying too much for access to academic journals.

How much did your university pay for your journals? Sadly, the full article in this week’s issue of Science is behind a paywall (don’t worry: we’ve recorded it with The Open Access Button!).

How visible are Latin American repositories on Google and Google Scholar? Not very.

Computer World highlights the success of OCEARCH, a “non-profit, global shark-tracking project” that makes its data accessible to all, and the popularity of one particular shark, Katherine.

Documentary filmmaker Brian Knappenberger discusses his new filmThe Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz.

Baruch College will host “The Academic Librarian in the Open Access Future” in December.
