Open access in the press

Some things coming across my newsfeed that could be of interest:

There's a new Librarian of Congress, Carla Hayden; this NY Review of Books article suggests that open access in academic publishing (particularly of federally-funded research) should be a number one priority of the new administration and the new librarian.

And MIT has instituted a 'Task force on the future of libraries' that seems to point towards an institutional model for broadening access as much as possible, including a cool logo involving the MIT Dome, hat tip Kai von Fintel.
