A French translation of my recent Library Journal article is now on the web.

I believe that’s the first time anything of mine has been translated, it’s exciting to me. Thanks to Frédéric Demians for being interested in making this happen, and Library Journal (and editor par excellence Josh Hadro) for granting permission for open access publication of the translation while they still had an exclusive license to the article (6 months, under my contract with them).

(Incidentally, have I reminded you recently that when writing an article for a big commerical publisher, always ask for the better contract. The first one they offer you generally takes away all your rights, but if you just say ‘Gee, I don’t like those terms, are they negotiable?’, they’ve often got another one waiting in the wings.)
