From the Editor: Back to School

This back-to-school issue of Academe features a pair of lead articles on academic freedom, but not in the traditional sense. Robert O’Neil, from the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression, surveys the latest cases in which academic freedom has been challenged in online venues. John Buschman then explores the issue of academic freedom for librarians and longs for a body that would do for librarians what the AAUP does for faculty members.

Academe Now Available through JSTOR

Many Academe readers now have online access to back issues of Academe magazine and its predecessor, the AAUP Bulletin, thanks to an agreement between JSTOR and the AAUP. JSTOR, a not-for-profit service, provides digital archives of more than twelve hundred journals through a database that is widely used by faculty members, students, and other researchers. In addition to Academe, JSTOR will digitize the new Bulletin of the AAUP, an annual publication that will include official Association reports.
