Revised FAQ on SCOAP3

SPARC (the Scholarly & Academic Resources Coalition) and ACRL (the Association of College and Research Libraries) have published a revised FAQ on the SCOAP3 (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access in Particle Physics Publishing) initiative. Led by CERN, SCOAP3 aims to bring the various international stakeholders in high energy physics (authors, funding agencies, publishers and libraries) into close consultation to redirect subscription expenditures to provide public access to the core peer-reviewed literature in an economically-sustainable way. Publishers have been invited to submit “bids” for their services, and libraries have been asked to submit “expressions of interest” in collaboration for this effort. So far, over 100 libraries, including Boston College Libraries, have taken this step, either directly or indirectly (via consortia).

The Nike Air Max 1(aka Nike Air Max or Nike Air Max 87 was released in a variety of colors and fabric combinations which have given it a contempory flavor.The first retro of the Air Max 1 came in 1992. Nike used the soles of the Air Max 90 to save money on production of this shoe. Due to the mismatch of the upper to sole, this version has been in high demand to find. All of the retros in 1992 were leather, but Nike went back to its roots when it brought our the Nike Air Max 1 again in nylon versions in 1995.
The Nike Air Max 1 has been released in more colors than any one collector has possessed.The Nike Air Max 1 is commonly used for limited releases such as for the opening of the store Atmos, Kid Robot, and there was a special one made for an Amsterdam only release.
