OA Librarian in SPARC e-news

OA Librarian has been mentioned in the latest (Dec. 2005-Jan. 2006) edition of the SPARC e-news. Here's the section from the newsletter:

New Weblog: _OA Librarian_
_OA Librarian_ is a new, cooperatively produced weblog, which combines a pathfinder function with news and commentary on open access and librarianship. Postings vary widely and include news items pertinent to librarians, relevant conference presentations, and other blogs or resources about open access developed by librarians.
One theme of _OA Librarian_ is highlighting the work of librarians who advocate for apen access. Recent articles focus on Antonella de Robbio, the originator of E-LIS; Anita Coleman, the driving force behind DLIST; and Charles W. Bailey, Jr., the author of the Open Access Bibliography: Liberating Scholarly Literature with E-Prints and Open Access Journals. Please visit:

This is nice to see, if I may say so.
