The Chronicle of Higher Education also reports in the July 7, 2006 issue that the publisher Springer announced at the ALA meeting this year a gift of free e-texts worth more than $1 million to academic libraries in the Katrina flood zones. This very generous gift is such a terrific gesture of goodwill from the Springer folks. Good for them! The gift tends to be scientific, technical and medicine materials, according to the article. Happy to report some glad news about publishers rather than just always complaining!
