Allie gives a sneak-peak at all the new OCTO services coming online in 2019. We're also re-naming the MEAM newsletter to "The Skimmer" -- if you have content you'd like to see covered, contact Sarah Carr at skimmer [at] octogroup.org. Lastly, are there academic papers you'd like to read but can't access? Give the MarXiv Bookmarklet a try: https://www.marxivinfo.org/request. We'll contact the author to ask that they share a copy in MarXiv so you (and the world) can access the paper for free, legally, forever and ever.
