Support the Library!
As you have heard, the UHM Library had a deficit this year which is the direct result of inflation under a flat budget. The librarians need your input. Please take the time to look at: http://www.hawaii.edu/sciref/collections_review/sd/
There will be a librarian in the Yap Conference room (A153) of Hamilton Library all day Wednesday, May 2nd, Friday, May 4th, and Tuesday May 8th to answer your questions and listen to your input. This cut will hugely impact the Sciences but will affect everyone who does research. We need to hear from you.

Part of the problem is our budget at UH, but there are other issues that are larger in terms of scholarly publishing. I wish we could have a public discussion on tenure and changes in scholarly publishing. Those interested should check out the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) website.
