As Researchers Turn to Google, Libraries Navigate the Messy World of Discovery Tools
Chronicle of Higher Education
Many professors and students gravitate to Google as a gateway to research. Libraries want to offer them a comparably simple and broad experience for searching academic content. As a result, a major change is under way in how libraries organize information. Instead of bewildering users with a bevy of specialized databases—books here, articles there—many libraries are bulldozing their digital silos. They now offer one-stop search boxes that comb entire collections, Google style.

Previously Unknown Warhol Works Discovered on Floppy Disks from 1985
Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry
A multi-institutional team of new-media artists, computer experts, and museum professionals has discovered a dozen previously unknown experiments by Andy Warhol on aging floppy disks from 1985. The purely digital images, "trapped" for nearly thirty years on Amiga floppy disks stored in the archives collection of the Andy Warhol Museum, were discovered and extracted by members of the Carnegie Mellon University Computer Club, with assistance from the museum's staff, the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, the Hillman Photography Initiative at the Carnegie Museum of Art, and the artist Cory Arcangel.

The Happy Hour Test
Inside Higher Ed
Getting a job, as we all know, can prove mysterious. Just what determines if one gets the job or not? And what, for departments and committees, proves the deciding factor? If things are relatively equal by the finalist stage, and they usually are, then what? I'd contend that many, maybe most searches come down to the intangibles. And the biggest and most indefinable of them all is simply fitting in.

Why This Movie Perfectly Re-Created a Picasso, Destroyed It, and Mailed the Evidence to Picasso's Estate
Vanity Fair
Imagine this: You've just spent three weeks painstakingly replicating a Picasso painting from scratch—you've scrutinized documentation about the artist's creative process; you've practiced his brushstrokes, so your work will look convincing; you've even painted in noted preliminary images, then covered them up, because that's what he did. You've toiled over this, all for mere seconds of screen time in a film. And then you have to destroy it.

Warming Up to the Culture of Wikipedia
New York Times
If ever there was the antithesis of the crowd-sourced Wikipedia, it would be a museum, where an expert picks what is seen and not seen, then carefully prepares captions explaining what each piece of art means. But while there used to be innate suspicion toward Wikipedia among museum staffs, even hostility, in recent years there has increasingly been cooperation. Wikipedia's volunteer editors are frequently invited to spend the day at museums and archives to create and improve articles related to the works housed there.
