  • New tools for analyzing information are arriving every day, but that doesn’t mean scholars who use them well are being rewarded, says Christine L. Borgman, a professor of information studies at the University of California at Los Angeles. She contends that the new “scholarly information infrastructure” must be shaped with collaborative, interdisciplinary research.
  • Zotero is a research tool, developed by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, that provides users with automated access to bibliographic information for online resources. Zotero “senses” bibliographic information contained in a web page and—when the user clicks an icon—gathers that information and places it in the user’s library of sources, where users can manage and search those sources. By automating the tasks of gathering, managing, and citing online references, Zotero facilitates a more efficient research process.
  • A Place to Bury Strangers

  • If tonight’s turn out was anything to go by, they already have a widespread appeal – everyone from overgrown NME and Drowned in Sound readers to older Q-reading beardy musos and a few electro kids with silly hair (Vice?) were in the sold out crowd tonight. Hell, I think I even saw a few proper (ish) punks throwing themselves around tonight (they don’t read, just break stuff).
