Independec* (for Independence, etc.)

Whether the goal is “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” “Liberté, égalité, fraternité,” or “Ash-shaʻb yurīd isqāṭ an-niẓām” (“the people want to bring down the regime”), it seems human beings everywhere will seek independence from would-be oppressors.  On this day, the birthday of the United States, we celebrate that impulse, because it is a noble one, even if the reality doesn’t always measure up.

Do your part by declaring Independec* from the tyranny of typos in your own catalog.  Right now there are 16 of these moderate probability errors in OhioLINK.  And if you’re lucky enough to have fireworks this year, enjoy them for those of us who aren’t so fortunate.  (Burn bans, you know!)
