Sequestration: What It Means for Museums
CAA News
On Friday, March 1, $85 billion in across-the-board federal spending cuts were triggered, a process commonly called "sequestration," which is now affecting nearly every agency throughout the government. For most agencies that support museums (including IMLS, NEA, NEH, and NSF), this means a 5 percent cut in their annual funding, including a reduction in grant-making activities for the year ahead.

Help Desk: Gallery Contract

Finding the Right Context
Inside Higher Ed
Papers and books exist in the context of academic disciplines. As we work on projects, we are in conversation with those who have done similar research in the past. An important part of any writing is acknowledging work that came before it and placing the research in a relevant scholarly context. This serves several purposes, such as letting the reader know in what particular literature one is situating one's work, clarifying what is motivating one's specific questions, and also giving credit to others who have done work in the domain.

Does Increased Exposure to a Piece of Art Make Us Like It More?
Phys.Org
The research challenges the idea that what people value in art is largely what they are used to, or that people will come to like any image if they see it enough times. Instead, the study's findings suggest that increased exposure to artworks does not necessarily make people like them more and that the quality of an artwork remains at the heart of its evaluation.

Lawyers Go to Cambodia over Statue
New York Times
Two lawyers from the United States Attorney's Office in Manhattan recently traveled into the Cambodian jungle to inspect an ancient, crumbling temple as part of their office's effort to seize a tenth-century Khmer statue that Sotheby's hopes to sell at auction. The unusual four-day trip is the latest development in a court case involving the auction house and US officials, who are trying to help Cambodia gain possession of the statue, which it contends was looted from the temple during the chaos of that country's civil war.

Keeping an Eye on Online Test-Takers

Millions of students worldwide have signed up in the last year for MOOCs, short for massive open online courses—those free, web-based classes available to one and all and taught by professors at Harvard, Duke, MIT, and other universities. But when those students take the final exam in calculus or genetics, how will their professors know that the test-takers on their distant laptops are doing their own work, and not asking Mr. Google for help?

Digital Textbooks: Publishers and the Unrealized Promise
Publishing Perspectives
Is it any wonder that digital textbooks haven't been widely embraced yet? Most digital textbooks are just overpriced, static versions of their printed counterparts. That hasn't stopped the hype about digital textbooks. On one hand, it's the promise of a new learning experience, with spinning molecules and interactive modules. On the other, it's the long-awaited solution to the industry's painful pricing practices. Maybe even both, if we dare to dream it.
