* Announcement (cross-posted) *

I just mailed the September issue of the SPARC Open Access 
Newsletter.  This issue takes a close look at the four hybrid OA journal 
programs launched in August (from BMJ, Wiley, Cambridge, and APS) and how 
the mid-term elections in the US could affect federal OA policies.  The Top 
Stories section takes a brief look at three institutions that have adopted 
OA mandates, the growing provost support for FRPAA, the launch of Open 
Access Central and Chemistry Central, the CERN plan to convert particle 
physics journals to OA, progress in providing OA to avian flu data, and the 
Google Library project's new partnership with the University of California 
and new willingness to let users print and download public-domain books.
