New policy white paper on higher education and multiple consultations from the UK government. Primary emphasis on the administrative and policy structure, economic models, customer (student) satisfaction, employer perspectives and social implications. Almost nothing on an integrated view of HE that includes research as a driver in teaching quality and excellence. Mention of a separate research/innovation strategy to come. International context almost entirely absent.
Useful article by Mark Fisher in the Art Newspaper on issues surrounding disposal and public benefit - stimulated by the recent Farrer seminar. A focus on art collections, but the principles and issues are relevant to natural history and library collections as well.
