The December 2009 issue of /Information Technology and Libraries/
(ITAL), LITA's peer-reviewed quarterly journal, is online and accessible
to all LITA members. Issues older than six months are open to all.
ITAL's main page is at
ITALica <http://ital-ica.blogspot.com/>, the weblog discussion area for
ITAL, has been updated with information about the latest issue. ITALica
features supplementary materials not included with the regular print and
electronic versions of /Information Technology and Libraries/, such as
"letters to the editor", updates to articles, and other materials we
can't work into the journal. One of the most important features of
ITALica is a forum for readers' conversations with our authors, wherein
authors host and monitor discussion for a period of time after
publication of their articles, so that you then have a chance to
interact with them.
ITALica offers you the opportunity to discuss with the
following ITAL authors their papers in the latest issue:
"'Discovery' Focus as Impetus for Organizational Learning" /
Jennifer L. Fabbi
"Information Discovery Insights Gained from MultiPAC, a Prototype
Library Discovery System" /
Alex A. Dolski
"Usability as a Method for Assessing Discovery" /
Tom Ipri, Michael Yunkin, and Jeanne M. Brown
"UNLV Special Collections in the Twenty-First Century" /
"Smartphones: A Potential Discovery Tool" /
Wendy Starkweather and Eva Stowers
"Building Pathfinders with Free Screen Capture Tools" /
"Enhancing OPAC Records for Discovery" /
Patrick Griffis and Cyrus Ford
No membership is required to view or participate in ITALica. We hope to
see you there!
