_Nominations for _Sci-5_
Members of the Science and Technology community are invited to nominate
quality Sci-Tech Web sites and resources for potential review in a new
Science and Technology Libraries (S&TL) (Haworth) column titled _Sci-5_
edited by Yours Truly. S&TL is now edited by Virginia Baldwin, engineering
librarian at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
Items of greatest interest for "Sci-5" are Science _or_ Technology
sites with uncommon but useful content, and/or those with innovative
features and functionalities. The Sci-5 profiles will be capsule reviews
of 400-450 words and will include at least one citation to a major source
for additional information.
For my first column, due July 20th, I will be profiling 5 major e-print
servers and am greatly interested in identifying additional candidates
other them those listed in the Iowa State list _Preprint Resources on the
[ http://www.lib.iastate.edu/services/ref/preprint.html ]
BTW: Our list was derived from the article
"Preprint Servers: Pushing the Envelope of Electronic Scholarly
Publishing" _Searcher_ 8(9) Oct 2000
by my Web colleague Nicholas G. Tomaiuolo and his colleague Joan G. Packer
of the Central Connecticut State University library.
The Title and Web address of candidate resources for _Sci-5_ are welcome
any time, and should be sent to
