Library Journal featured the IMLS-funded MLibrary work on the Copyright Review Management System. The article explains the work being undertaken by Michigan and the collaborative contributions by several partner libraries, and has some good quotes by our own Anne Karle-Zenith.

SkyRiver, LLC, a library cataloging service, filed an antitrust lawsuit against OCLC in the Northern District of California on July 28, 2010. The suit alleges anti-competitive and monopolistic behavior. OCLC recently caused controversy in the library community by proposing a revised use policy that would have required libraries to be restrictive in the use of their own library records. The filing and information on the revised OCLC use policy are available to view online.
