With three sadistic university coaches fired in the last six weeks, and with outrage at their having been fired the dominant response among students and alumni, it's time to come to grips with the kinkiness of the American university.

Over the past several weeks, I have discussed the impact of attending a traditionally female college in the early 1970s. I wasn’t there that long — like most students of the time, I got on the train at 18 and disembarked at 22 with a diploma. But those four years were formative, shaping the rest of my personal and professional life in some important ways:

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the discussion Friday about the academic library and the cloud. I learned a ton.Going forward, I'm hoping to build on this dialogue and find more opportunities for the academic technology and academic librarian worlds to communicate and share information.

This week, after much discussion and soul-searching, my husband quit his job. A stoical guy who has worked full-time since he was 17, my husband needed lots of persuading to believe that his happiness is more important to our family than a paycheck.

Dear Academic Librarians…...Please take these questions as those from someone who loves academic libraries and has the ultimate respect and admiration or the academic librarians that make these institutions so indispensable for teaching and learning.Question 1: Do you foresee a future in which academic libraries will transition from a command and control model of book/journal buying to a demand based, market driven approach to just-in-time acquisitions?
