Google Who?
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Google Books project has been put on ice, delaying what some academic librarians had hoped would be a watershed moment in the accessibility and searchability of digital texts. But a pair of library services announced this week by HathiTrust Digital Library and Proquest show that even as the world's most high-profile digital search-and-retrieval effort has been set back, smaller, academically oriented projects are hoping to continue making electronic texts more discoverable.

Once in the Public's Hands, Now Back in Picasso's
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Supreme Court arguments often concern not just the narrow issue in the case but also the implications of a ruling. You sometimes catch the justices squinting, trying to see over the legal horizon. Nine years ago, for instance, the court heard arguments in a case about whether Congress was free to add twenty years of copyright protection for works that had not yet entered the public domain. Several justices asked about a different and even tougher question: Was Congress also free to restore copyright protection to works that had entered the public domain and become public property?

Maine Governor Orders Removal of Labor Mural, Sparking Outcry
Sun Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail

Governor Paul LePage has ordered the removal of a thirty-six-foot mural depicting Maine's labor history from the lobby of the Department of Labor. Worker advocates described the move as a "mean-spirited" provocation amid the administration's high-tension standoff with unions. More

Tokyo's Art Scene Struggles to Resume
The Japan Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It's been two weeks since the Kanto-Tohoku earthquake, and the nation is only just able to start assessing the long-term effects it will have on society. In Tokyo, which has been lucky enough to suffer little structural damage, museums and galleries—many of which closed immediately after the disaster—are now beginning to schedule reopening dates.

List of Looted Antiquities Finally Released
The Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
On March 15, Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities issued a revised list of objects stolen from Cairo's Egyptian Museum on January 28. On February 2, the minister of antiquities, Zahi Hawass, who has since resigned, reported that there had been no thefts. On February 12 he retracted this statement, announcing eighteen losses (four items were subsequently recovered). The latest list comprises fifty-four antiquities, including a gilded statue of Menkaret carrying Tutank-hamun (twelve were subsequently recovered). The delay in announcing the losses has inevitably reduced the chance of recoveries. More

Libya's Ancient Heritage Sites Suffer from Neglect
The Daily Star    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A toga-clad statue that would be a prize museum piece elsewhere lies half buried among cow dung at the ancient Greek city of Cyrene in eastern Libya, where the country's wealth in antiquities has suffered decades of neglect. Goats and cows graze among the towering Greek and Roman columns of the ruined city, a UNESCO world-heritage site perched on a mountain side with stunning views over verdant plains and the Mediterranean Sea beyond.

Calling All Artists, Whoever You Are
The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It would be easier to count up all the squirrels in New York City than the artists who live here. But that's not stopping a new cultural think tank, the Institute for Culture in the Service of Community Sustainability, from trying. In 2008, the New York City Occupational Employment Statistics officially tallied 1,200 fine artists, 1,470 dancers, and 5,820 actors. But these numbers, and others used by city policy makers, constitute a gross underestimation, according to the ICSCS. More

Hell-Raising Artist Jake Chapman Rallies British Culturati to Support Student Civil Disobedience
Artinfo.com    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For months, the United Kingdom has been roiled by student protests standing up to the coalition government's attempt to sharply raise annual tuition at universities to up to £9,000. Now, a coalition of more than ninety artists, musicians, and creative figures has come together to make a statement of solidarity with the young protesters. The list includes some big names, including visual artists Damien Hirst, Marc Quinn, and Rachel Whiteread; the Clash rocker Mick Jones; and the fashion designer Stella McCartney. And the form of solidarity offered is not just abstract—it comes in the form of cash to pay the fines of persecuted and jailed students, thus encouraging further civil disobedience against the education fee hikes.
