Print book reading is surging, just not in research libraries

US booksellers and public libraries are reporting strong growth in demand for print books, but research libraries are increasingly serving as archives, rather than references. Despite this, there is little political will to reorient academic research libraries around electronic materials; attempts to reduce print collections or move them to long-term storage are staunchly opposed by students and faculty who often win their battles...but then fail to patronize the libraries they've saved, a ...

Was Michael O'Malley's election to Cuyahoga County prosecutor a call for re-examination of...

McGinty Tuesday a mandate for Oa Malley to reopen the case of Tamir Rice and seek justice for the death of the 12-year-old at the hands of police? Oa Malley won the Democratic Party primary by a landslide, with more than 55 percent of the vote. That generally does not happen to incumbent Democrats in Cuyahoga County.
