Art Emerges from DNA Left Behind
Wall Street Journal
They are the faces of real people, portraitlike sculptures etched from an almost powdery substance. The eye colors are distinct, the facial contours sharp, even though the artist, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, has never met or seen her subjects.

Decompressing Salaries
Inside Higher Ed
It's a dilemma many universities face: how to attract new, top faculty with competitive salaries without being unfair to senior professors, whose salaries often are tied to a pay scale or plan that hasn't kept up with the outside market.

From Math Teacher to Adult Film Extra: The Unexpected Early Jobs of Thirty Art Stars
Blouin Artinfo
Everyone started out somewhere—including your favorite art stars. Some of the biggest names in the visual arts came from surprisingly humble beginnings, and we've picked thirty of the most telling examples of artists who had less-than-glamorous jobs while pursuing their craft. Sometimes this exercise actually yields serious insight into the styles they became known for; sometimes not. In every case, though, it gives a window into the life behind the work.

The National Digital Public Library Is Launched
New York Review of Books
The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), to be launched on April 18, is a project to make the holdings of America's research libraries, archives, and museums available to all Americans—and eventually to everyone in the world—online and free of charge. How is that possible? In order to answer that question, I would like to describe the first steps and immediate future of the DPLA. But before going into detail, I think it important to stand back and take a broad view of how such an ambitious undertaking fits into the development of what we commonly call an information society.

Scholars Increasingly Use Online Resources, Survey Finds, but They Value Traditional Formats Too
Chronicle of Higher Education
Scholars continue to get more comfortable with electronic-only journals, and they increasingly get access to the material they want via digital channels, including internet search engines and more-specific discovery tools provided by academic libraries. When it comes time to publish their own research, though, faculty members still seek out journals with the highest prestige and the widest readership in their fields, whether or not those journals are electronic and make articles free online.

Scientific Articles Accepted (Personal Checks, Too)
New York Times
The scientists who were recruited to appear at a conference called Entomology-2013 thought they had been selected to make a presentation to the leading professional association of scientists who study insects. But they found out the hard way that they were wrong. The prestigious, academically sanctioned conference they had in mind has a slightly different name: Entomology 2013 (without the hyphen). The one they had signed up for featured speakers who were recruited by email, not vetted by leading academics. Those who agreed to appear were later charged a hefty fee for the privilege, and pretty much anyone who paid got a spot on the podium that could be used to pad a résumé.

To Salvage and Sell?
Art Newspaper
After Superstorm Sandy hit New York City last October, the conservator Gloria Velandia's studio was littered with hundreds of damaged works of art. But whether she repaired a work depended not so much on the extent of the damage, but on whether or not she received approval to proceed from the insurance company paying the bill. "It's a decision made by the insurance adjusters," Velandia says, and they might decide it's cheaper instead to declare a work "a total loss" and pay out its insured value.

How Many Light Bulbs Does It Take to Discolor a van Gogh?
ARTnews
Last year, conservators at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam noticed that areas of bright yellow paint in many of the artist’s works, such as Sunflowers, were turning shades of green and brown. To find out why, they teamed up with scientists at the University of Antwerp in Belgium. Online news reports claimed that the scientists found prolonged exposure to LED lights to be the cause of the darkening. That conclusion, however, is inaccurate.

Fighting the Fear
Inside Higher Ed
Seeking to rouse their colleges to stand up against inadequate compensation and working conditions, adjunct instructors and labor activists at the Adjunct Faculty Association of the United Steelworkers conference collided with the concern that speaking out could be worse than keeping quiet. But in searching for solutions that would inspire instructors off the tenure track to overcome that fear, speakers at the conference cast about for cultural and historical analogies without seeming to settle on a specific one.
