My colleague Deanna Marcum and I have put together some thoughts about how evidence-based decision-making can allow libraries to take new strategic directions more decisively and develop innovative service offerings more effectively than would otherwise be possible.We believe a more evidence-based decision-making approach can help today's library leaders as they grapple with some of the essential elements of the academic library and build its future. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on this topic.

"I’ve been asked a lot recently about whether I believe Facebook will create its own search engine, because the rumors that never die have started again. I don’t, not a web-wide one. Among other reasons, I think Facebook won’t because it understands that doing social right, when you’re at the scale Facebook handles, is ensuring that people discover what’s interesting to them rather than having to search for it. Social = discovery, a kissing cousin of search, but not the same. "

Re-reading Campbell vs. Acuff Rose (http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/92-1292.ZS.html) so listening to Roy Orbison and 2 Live Crew this morning.

I was re-reading it to remind myself how exactly parody is defined by the Supreme Court: 

"
For the purposes of copyright law, the nub of the definitions, and the heart of any parodist's claim to quote from existing material, is the use of some elements of a prior author's composition to create a new one that, at least in part, comments on that author's works.
...
The Act has no hint of an evidentiary preference for parodists over their victims, and no workable presumption for parody could take account of the fact that parody often shades into satire when society is lampooned through its creative artifacts, or that a work may contain both parodic and non parodic elements. Accordingly, parody, like any other use, has to work its way through the relevant factors, and be judged case by case, in light of the ends of the copyright law.
...
While we might not assign a high rank to the parodic element here, we think it fair to say that 2 Live Crew's song reasonably could be perceived as commenting on the original or criticizing it, to some degree.
"

Interstingly, I can buy Orbison through Google Play (and you can listen to it for free through the link below), but 2 Live Crew's parody isn't available through that store - you can find it streaming here http://youtu.be/65GQ70Rf_8Y or for download/purchase here http://www.amazon.com/Me-So-Horny-Explicit/dp/B0015AEF5A/.
