The December 2010 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:
"Generating Collaborative Systems for Digital Libraries: a Model-Driven
Alessio Malizia, Paolo Bottoni, and S. Levialdi
"The Middle Mile: The Role of the Public Library in Ensuring Access to
Marijke Visser and Mary Alice Ball
"An Evolutive Process to Convert Glossaries into Ontologies" /

and Luis de-Marcos

No membership is required to view or participate in ITALica. We hope to
see you there!
