Letter to Steve Leggett re: comments in support of a study on the current state of recorded sound preservation in the United States (Jan. 26, 2007)

This statement is submitted on behalf of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) in response to the request by the Library of Congress for comments in support of a study on the current state of recorded sound preservation in the United States. Sound recordings are a critically important part of our Nation's cultural and educational landscape. As a consequence, the scope of these collections within the ARL community is significant and diverse. Unfortunately, these collections are also in various stages of risk.

Letter to Department of Justice Regarding Wiley and Sons Acquisition of Blackwell Publishing

John Wiley and Sons announced an agreement to acquire Blackwell Publishing. As members of the Information Access Alliance, we are deeply concerned that this transaction will exacerbate market dysfunctions and result in further reduction in access to critical research information that fuels the entire higher education and research enterprise. We urge the Department of Justice to challenge this proposed sale.
