Reducing links to content that is not #openaccess

I am moved by the fact that the editorial board of the Journal of Library Administration left the publisher.   I used to blog about articles appearing in commercial toll access journals, but I think I will stop (or greatly reduce) the practice.  People can find that content if they wish; I don’t need to let people know that it exists.  If I find green OA versions of articles that are behind paywalls, I will be happy to link to that content.  For example, it is too bad that there is no Open Access version of this article from the Journal of Access Services.

I will probably continue to let people know about content that appears in books.  Books are a different sort of beast. If Anna or Valerie want to link to journal articles that are behind paywalls, that is ok with me.
