Reason: An Online Student Attended a Rooftop Party. He Was Reported to NYU and Suspended Indefinitely.. “It was a gorgeous August weekend in New York City, and Andy—a college senior at New York University (NYU)—decided to attend a rooftop social gathering with his roommates. The party was consistent with New York City’s Phase 4 COVID-19 guidelines, which allow events of up to 50 people. Many attendees went mask-less, but Andy says he didn’t stand in close proximity to anyone other than his roommates—who are also students—and they left after a short while. But unbeknownst to Andy—whose name has been changed for this article to protect his privacy—someone at the party posted a video of the event on social media.”

New York University Library Acquires Triple Canopy Archives

The New York University Library has acquired the archive of the art and literary journal Triple Canopy. The thing about this is: this journal has published since 2007 and almost entirely online. The library will expand its holdings as the journal keeps publishing, as an insurance against the Web-based archive of the journal itself going offline/otherwise awry. Considering What’s going on with the Boston Phoenix, I think this is a fine idea.
