Around the Web: University of Virginia controversy

This collection of posts is only the tip of the iceberg of reaction to the ongoing controversy at the University of Virginia. For more, see the first item in the list for a digital archive.

I consider this particular crisis a very interesting one to follow, one with implications for all universities and similar in scope and importance as the McMaster and Harvard Libraries controversies were for libraries. I guess I'll have to come up with one of these posts for the Harvard reorganization too. The current crisis at the Library and Archives Canada seems to have larger implications as well, so there's another topic where I may do a compilation post.

I may redo this list chronologically at some point, but not right now.

These types of changes in concentration length usually are reflected while in the viewfinder and on big display screen right at the back of the exact camera.
