  2. The Paradox of Liberation

    Suber, Peter
    Variations on the theme that one is not free until one freely chooses to become free. I find traces of the theme in Kant, Dennett, and Mill, and show their strategies for preventing the claim from becoming a contradiction.

  8. Potential Disciplinary of the NASA ADS Expansion: An evaluation of disciplines, communities, and costs of expansion

    Willmott, Mathew
    The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory/NASA Astrophysics Data System is a digital library supporting researchers in astronomy, astrophysics, and currently to a lesser extent, physics and geophysics. The ADS has been in operation since the early 1990’s, and indexes virtually the entirety of published astronomy and astrophysics material; in addition, the system contains full-text scans of most astronomy and astrophysics research articles prior to 1997. The ADS is currently considered an essential component of research in these fields; usage analysis shows that the system is used almost daily by the majority of the astronomy research community, and the collaborations the organization has...

  10. The Reflexivity of Change: The Case of Language Norms

    Suber, Peter
    In the evolution of speech, the censure of mispronunciations can cause them to abate, and thereby reinforce the prevailing norm. Conversely, widespread and longlasting mispronunciation can amend the norm. In the former case we see the reflexive self-stabilization of language norms; in the latter, the reflexive subversion of the norms. This essay proposes a general model of the reflexive stability and change of norms, and applies it to language norms; elsewhere the author applies the same analysis to legal norms. The need traditionally filled by a priori norms is filled by slow-changing, "constitutive a posteriori" norms.

  20. The Devil’s Shoehorn: A case study of EAD to ArchivesSpace migration at a large university

    Mayo, William David; Bowers, Kathryn A.
    A band of archivists and IT professionals at Harvard took on a project to convert nearly two million descriptions of archival collection components from marked-up text into the ArchivesSpace archival metadata management system. Starting in the mid-1990s, Harvard was an alpha implementer of EAD, an SGML (later XML) text markup language for electronic inventories, indexes, and finding aids that archivists use to wend their way through the sometimes quirky filing systems that bureaucracies establish for their records or the utter chaos in which some individuals keep their personal archives. These pathfinder documents, designed to cope with messy reality, can themselves...
