Editor's Note:

I hope you enjoy this third installment of Academic BRASS as much as I enjoyed editing it. I expect you will find much to read and ponder in this issue. In the September issue, I promised four articles. Alas, I ended up with merely three. I will make no such pronouncements in the future. No worries though, this group of business librarians has completed some excellent work. Thanks everyone.
