OA edition of Chris Awre article

When I first blogged Chris Awre's article from the April issue of Learned Publishing, The JISC's FAIR Programme: disclosing and sharing institutional assets, it was only accessible to subscribers. But he has now created an OA edition by depositing it in E-LIS. Thanks to Chris for doing so and to LP for granting permission. (PS: This is another example of an author of an article about OA providing OA to the article by following the steps I recommend in my call to authors. I'm very glad to see the call working as intended. To save time and space in the future, however, I'll probably just add the new URL to the original blog posting rather than write a new posting about the OA edition.)
