LSJ Editors' Blog: Hot off the presses, our first issue

Hot off the presses, our first issue

We are thrilled to announce the release of the September issue of Library Student Journal—our first!

We have here a diverse blend of papers in this first issue:

  • Editor-in-chief Eli Guinnee introduces the first issue by advocating greater LIS participation in the Open Access publishing world;
  • David Brian Holt explores the effect of Internet filtering on the gay/lesbian patron;
  • Michael Giarlo examines the role skepticism plays in human-information behavior;
  • Cynthia Oser tells us that the problem of "underagism" can no longer be ignored, and gives us some suggestions;
  • Lana Gottschalk overviews the current state of Internet filtering in public libraries;
  • Licia Slimon writes about her personal experience with IM reference at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh;
Have your own opinion on one of these subjects? The issues raised in this and future issues of LSJ can be discussed in the LSJ Community Forum. Please take time to give us your two cents.

Happy reading!

...and we have an experimental comment form for each article! Give it a try -- we'll see how well it works for you.

Looks great to me. What it really needs is some Library 2.0 technology such as an RSS feed for the journal webpage. Congratulations.
