Nettes Zitat

Ryan Overbey, Ryan’s Lair, September 15, 2004. „I look forward to the day when librarians tell their grandchildren about bundled journal packages that cost over $10k a year, straining the already-strained budgets of research libraries, just because academics were too lazy and timid to publish in new fora with new technology. The grandchildren will laugh, and wonder how we could ever have been so stupid.“ [via Open Access News]
