Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship Winter 2000

From the Editor


With this first issue of the new year, I'm pleased to welcome a new member of the editorial board. David Flaxbart, Chemistry Librarian at the University of Texas, Austin, will lend his expertise to this journal.

This is also a good time to take stock of where things stand with ISTL. In 1999 we had over 30,000 visits to the ISTL home page. That seems a respectable number for a specialized journal.

Our most popular articles of the past year dealt mostly with technology-related issues. The top ten list includes:

  1. Chemistry Resources on the Internet (Winter 1998)
  2. Electronic Journals as a Component of the Digital Library (Spring 1999)
  3. Ruminations on the Sci-Tech Serials Crisis (Fall 1998)
  4. Guide to Computer Science Internet Sources (Summer 1997)
  5. You Can't Get There from Here: Issues in Remote Access to Electronic Journals for a Health Sciences Library (Spring 1999)
  6. Electronic Publishing of Scholarly Journals: A Bibliographic Essay of Current Issues (Spring 1999)
  7. Scientific Literacy Skills for Non-Science Librarians: Bootstrap Training (Fall 1999)
  8. Science in the Twilight Zone; Or, Are Science Libraries Related to Science (Fall 1998)
  9. Library Staffing Considerations in the Age of Technology: Basic Elements for Managing Change (Fall 1999)
