       "E is for Everything: The Extra-Ordinary, Evolutionary

   I am pleased to announce the formal publication of my review article
about the  features, functionalities, and content of The Eclectic
Journal titled:

       "E is for Everything: The Extra-Ordinary, Evolutionary
               The Serials Librarian 43(3/4):  293 - 321 (2002)

ABSTRACT. An ever-increasing number of e-journals are transcending the
limitations of the paper medium by incorporating and integrating a wide
variety of innovative electronic features and content. In this article,
we examine the current evolution of the scholarly journal and review the
emergence of functionalities that expand and extend the conventional
electronic journal. We further explore additional e-journal enhancements
and consider new forms and formats of scholarly communication likely to
arise in the not-so-distant future
