Candidates for e-Profiles Gerry Mckiernan 22 Jan 2001 14:48 UTC

                               _Candidates for e-Profiles_

     Recently, I was appointed a Contributing Editor of _Library Hi Tech
News_ (LHTN) [ ], the companion news journal
of _Library Hi Tech_ [ ]. [LTHN will have a
change in it's editorship with the 2001 issues]

  For LHTN, I will author a regular column tentatively titled
"e-Profiles". The intent of e-Profiles is to provide a descriptive profile
of new, novel, innovative, emerging, unusual, and/or unconventional Web
technologies, applications and resources.

     I am greatly interested in receiving nominations of candidates for
potential review in a future eProfiles column. I am most interested in
those technologies, applications and/or resources that *you* believe are
noteworthy but are not as well known as they should be among our

   As an example, I believe the highly novel index to _Astrophysical
Journal_ created using Kohonen self-organizing semantic maps

               [ ]

is particularly noteworthy and a technology, application _and_ resource
that should be more widely recognized. [I plan to profile this index in
one of my first columns for LHTN]

    As Always, Any and All contributions, suggestions, comments, queries,
questions, cosmic insights, etc., etc., etc. are Most Welcome.
