Alumni association journal access!

The University of Washington Alumni Association, of which I am a member, is now offering access to on-line scholarly and popular journals as one of its membership perks.

I mention this for two reasons. First, I know there are some UW alumni who read the blog and who might value this perk if they are not already members. Second, and much more broadly, this is but one more milestone on the long road to major changes in academic publishing, as hard copies slowly disappear and, I suspect, for-profit journals disappear along with them.
