        _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 
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 ||

[Lancaster, F.W., Toward Paperless Information Systems ( Academic Press: New 
York, NY, 1978), 127.]

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