HathiTrust Digital Library wins latest round in battle with authors
The Chronicle of Higher Education
In what legal observers and fair-use advocates are calling a victory for libraries, a federal appeals court has upheld most of a lower court's 2012 ruling in favor of the HathiTrust Digital Library in a copyright-infringement lawsuit brought by the Authors Guild and other plaintiffs. The decision is another legal setback for the Authors Guild, which has also been fighting a long court battle over Google's mass digitizing of books.

Why are only 60 percent of journalists on Twitter?
Mediabistro
The American Journalism Review recently posted a piece with the headline "Some Newspapers to Staff: Social Media Isn't Optional, It's Mandatory." Everyone take a deep breath. It's not totally ridiculous: The piece, written by Mary Ann Fischer, discusses the various ways newsrooms get editors and reporters on social media, how it's hard to call it "mandatory," and how social media guidelines should be "living breathing documents."

5 things to look for in a critique partner
Writer's Digest
By Chuck Sambuchino: Writing can be a very solitary profession. And most of us like it that way — huddled at our vintage desks or curled up on our couches, muttering to ourselves while our coffee grows cold. But once that draft is finished ... then what?

The New York Times
Writing is scary. It is especially scary now, as advances shrink, publishers fight with Amazon, and the death of the novel is forecast with ever-increasing frequency. It's a time when it would make a lot of sense to quit — and a time when simply not quitting is becoming its own art form. Those who leave academia have "quit lit" — stories of how and why they exited an institution that they felt undervalued them and their work.

Buffer
By Kevan Lee: Phew! Talk about pressure. Writing a blog post about how to write a perfect blog post is the most meta of burdens. It's a bit different than writing about perfect tweets or ideal Facebook posts. There's nowhere to hide when you're blogging about perfect blogging.
