    I have been following this thread with interest. My Law librarian friends
    that the trend of looking only at on-line sources is very strong among law
    students as well. Fortunately, law materials have the financial resources
    them to get most important sources quickly on line.

    One question that arises, though, is the nasty issue of copyright. Can we
    self-archive published work. It would seem not, at least in the case of journal
    articles for which we have assigned copyright to the journal. Am I just too
    timid? Is this really not a problem?

    Dear Willard,

    I think there is an attractive (and legal) middle ground between self archiving and traditional scholarly publishing. The MIT Press Journals division allows our authors to web-publish/host their articles independently one year after publication. Our books division is a little more flexible than that. In our case the publisher still retains the rights, but the author gets the added bonus of increased distribution as well as the imprimatur of formal publication.

    I know of other university presses that offer similar arrangements.

    Thanks, Philip
