        _New and Old Articles About Innovative Information Systems_

I am pleased to announce the publication and availability of self-archived copies of
two of my SCI-5 columns devoted to Innovative Information Systems:

"New Age E-Journals, Indexes, and Services,"
Science & Technology Libraries, Vol. 21, No. 3/4, 2001 [2003], pp. 223-233.


"Scholar-Based Initiatives in Publishing," Science & Technology Libraries, Vol. 22, No. 3/4, 2002 [2003], pp. 181-191

[  ]

I am also pleased to announce the availability of self-archived copies of previously published articles that profile other Innovative Information Systems, etc:

"eCONF: The SLAC Electronic Conference Proceedings Archive," Library Hi Tech News, Vol. 18 No. 5, 2001, pp. 16-23.


To promote the publication and expedite the availability of conference proceedings, an experimental archive titled eConf has been established under the auspices of the SLAC Technical Information Services department. At this time, the eConf archive is limited to proceedings in high-energy physics and related fields. The archive
presently contains the conference papers of two proceedings: the 19th International Symposium on Lepton and Photon Interactions at High Energies (LP 99) and 20th International
Linac Conference.


"EnergyFiles: The Virtual Library of Energy Science and Technology," Library Hi Tech News, Vol. 20, No. 1, January/February  2003, 30-36.


The targeted audience for EnergyFiles is end users and organizations having a need for
energy-related scientific and technical information. Anticipated primary users include
researchers, scientists, project managers, program, managers, academic (educators and students), and associated information professionals.

"Library Database Advisors - Emerging Innovative Augmented Digital Library Services," Library Hi Tech News Vol. 19, No. 4, May 2002, pp. 27-33.

"Why should we make our users hunt down the best resource for a given information need and learn how to use its particular options for searching? Why not provide them with a simple way to get started?" || Roy Tennant ||


"Web-based Journal Manuscript Management and Peer-Review Systems and Services," Library Hi Tech News Vol. 19, No. 7, August 2002, pp.  31-43.

"* [A] paperless system would significantly reduce delays in all aspects of the dissemination cycle. The composition process itself should be speeded up and so should the whole interaction among writers, publishers, and referees."  || F. W. Lancaster ||

And BTW: For the Irish amongst us, as well as those who wish they were [:-)]:
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
