More on the groundswell for OA—yes, universities are finally getting wise to the publishers that have been stealing from them. I'm sure a bunch of librarians are saying, "about time, people."

Rep. John Conyers, sponsor of a bill to steal taxpayer-funded health information from sick kids' moms and give it to publishing companies, got $9000 in campaign contributions from those companies.
