From an IGI Global News Release (via E-Mail):
IGI Global, an international publishing company specializing in high-quality research publications on all aspects of information technology management, is proud to announce the launch of its Advances in Library Information Science (ALIS) Newsletter. To be updated on a quarterly basis, the newsletter will draw attention to high-quality, research-oriented content from the forthcoming ALIS book series, covering the ongoing developments and trends affecting libraries in the United States and around the world. The first issue will be published in early March 2011.
Each newsletter will be centered on a specific theme and tied to a publication in the ALIS book series, covering topics related to the advancement of 21st century librarianship such as e-reference discoverability, blogging in libraries, library space planning, evaluating information credibility, collaborative initiatives between libraries, advancement of librarian education, and digital rights management.
According to the series’ editor Mirela Roncevic, “The goal of the newsletter is to spark interest in the ALIS series by offering a free glimpse into each book’s content ahead of publication. The edited, article-like versions of the essays featured in the newsletter serve to inform on the most pressing library topics, while those appearing in the books—equipped with citations, references, and other tools of scholarly value—serve as primers for a new generation of library and information science professionals.”
