Open Access - Where is Columbia?

On Wednesday, April 8, I gave an open access presentation at Columbia University, and I asked the question why the university as a whole was not interested in demonstrating greater leadership in this area. The University Librarian, Jim Neal, has been a strong and important open access advocate for years. He has brought on Kenny Crews to help those on campus sort out the copyright issues. But, where is the rest of the campus?

Well, the good news, at least, is that two days later we saw that some of the students get it. Kudos for a very well done piece!
