Description: Description: OpenAccess

 

 

 

 

Ruben J. Garcia. Marginal workers:  how legal fault lines divide workers and leave them without protection. New York University Press, 2012.

KF3464.G37 2012.

 

Undocumented and authorized immigrant laborers, female workers, workers of color, guest workers, and unionized workers together compose an enormous and diverse part of the labor force in America.

In Marginal Workers, Ruben J. Garcia demonstrates that when it comes to these marginal workers, the sum of the law is less than its parts, and, despite what appears to be a plethora of applicable statutes, marginal workers are frequently lacking in protection. Throughout, Garcia argues for a new paradigm in worker protection, one based on human freedom and rights, and points to a number of examples in which marginal workers have organized for greater justice on the job in spite of the weakness of the law.

 

 

 

Peter Suber. Open Access. MIT Press, 2012.

Z286.O63S83 2012.

 

The Internet lets us share perfect copies of our work with a worldwide audience at virtually no cost. We take advantage of this revolutionary opportunity when we make our work “open access”: digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. In this concise introduction, Peter Suber tells us what open access is and isn’t, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery to the mainstream, and what its future may hold. Peter Suber, director of the Harvard Open Access Project, is widely considered the de facto leader of the worldwide open access movement. Open Access distills a decade of his influential writing and thinking about open access, creating an indispensable book on the subject for researchers, librarians, administrators, publishers, and more.
