An Interview with Jenica Rogers

“In 2012, Jenica Rogers, director of libraries for the State University of New York at Potsdam, drew attention in the library community for announcing candidly in September that she would not be renewing her university’s annual subscription to the American Chemical Society’s (ACS) online journals package because of ever-increasing subscription costs. Rogers’s stance sent shock waves throughout the community and brought up questions concerning new business models and the challenge of open access. American Libraries spoke with Rogers in November about the outcomes of her decision.”

AP INTERVIEW: TRETHEWEY A ‘CHEERLEADER’ FOR POETRY

“Natasha Trethewey smashes stereotypes about poets. She’s not stuffy. Or shy. Or aloof. As U.S. poet laureate, the 46-year-old describes herself as a “cheerleader” for the written word. She chooses the label deliberately, not only because she was head cheerleader at the University of Georgia in the late 1980s (Big hair! Big smile!), but also because, as a younger laureate, she wants to bring a sense of energy to the position.”
