Hello friends,

The June 2011 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 <>, 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:

"Management and Support of Shared Integrated Library Systems" /
Jason Vaughan and Kristen Costello

"Benign Neglect: Developing Life Rafts for Digital Content" /
Jody L. DeRidder

"Seeing the Wood for the Trees: Enhancing Metadata Subject Elements with 
Weights" /
Hong Zhang, Linda C. Smith, Michael Twidale, and Fang Huang Gao

"Building an Open Source Institutional Repository at a Small Law School 
Library: Is it Realistic or Unattainable?" /
Fang Wang

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

Andy Boze
Web site Manager, ITAL, for the Editorial Board
