Who's Faster, a Pirate or a Librarian? Sci-Hub, #icanhazPDF, Alternative Access Methods, and the Lessons for Libraries and their Patrons

Libraries have traditionally been the go-to place for information. But social media and the deep web have presented users with other options. If gaps grow between what libraries are prepared to offer and what users want and need, a variety of problems can arise. Librarians play an essential role as advocates and trainers for information literacy, as well as guardians of content. Content piracy threatens every link in the scholarly communication chain. This session will discuss the latest outside-the-library access methods for STM content and the reasons why some users prefer them. Commentary on the legal landscape and lessons from other content businesses will also be offered. The closely related challenge of user authentication will also be explored. Audience participation is requested.

Right now, I spend most of my work time tracking hybrid content for GOkb, battling a link resolver, and manipulating CORAL. Please talk to me about these things! (Seriously. I need all the tips I can get.)
