It’s long been obvious that on many of the key political issues of the day, the United States remains an outlier. Whether we’re talking climate change, healthcare, or gun control, it’s clear that U.S. governments, both Republican and Democratic, have pursued agendas substantially to the right of their counterparts in Western Europe and other regions.

In this session, we’re not going to dig into those or any other hot-button political issues. Instead, we’ll explore a similar divide that appears to exist in academic librarianship and scholarly research. We will focus on differences in attitudes toward national libraries, approaches to open access publishing, and the perceived value of qualitative research.
