The summer issue of the Chronicle is available (pdf). No, it’s not as compelling as Harry Potter, but it does contain lots of information relevant to the Philadelphia chapter of MLA. You can read it at the old website, where it is available in both HTML and PDF; or here at the new website (click on the Chronicle link in the green banner above for all issues). For the fall issue we hope to be able to post the HTML version as a series of postings on this new chapter site. The PDF will still be available for those of you who like to download it. For now, enjoy!

The bill includes language making the NIH public access policy mandatory. The Senate should take up the bill later this summer.
