Internet Reference Services Quarterly Wants YOU!
.: Are you doing something innovative? Are you currently using Internet technology to enhance the experiences of your staff or your users? Have you actively analyzed trends in the use or application of Internet technologies? We want you to share your results with our readers!
Internet Reference Services Quarterly (IRSQ), a peer-reviewed journal published by The Haworth Press, Inc., welcomes the submission of manuscripts for its next issue. Don't let the word "reference" in the title fool you. IRSQ highlights the theory and practice behind emerging Internet services, sources and resources in all areas of librarianship. Research-based studies, case studies of successful services or programs, and authoritative articles highlighting best practices are welcome.
Topics of interest to us include: blogs, copyright law, course management systems, digital collections and digital object repositories, electronic information access (e-reserves, document delivery, electronic theses of dissertations, home-grown databases), federated searching technologies, Googlization, information services for cell phones, iPods or PDAs, IT/library mergers, Internet security, library web site innovations, link resolvers, plagiarism, and streaming video and audio.
Submissions should follow the Haworth guidelines for manuscript format and preparation available at http://www.haworthpress.com/journals/instructionsforauthors.asp. All submissions should be accompanied by a Manuscript Submission and Copyright Transfer form, available at http://www.haworthpressinc.com/pdfs/jmanuscript.pdf.
All accepted manuscripts will be published in the journal's next issue, Volume 11, No. 2. The due date for submission of manuscripts is October 15, 2005. For more information or manuscript submission questions, please contact Christopher Cox at coxcn AT wec DOT edu or at the address below. We look forward to reading your work and having the opportunity to share it with other librarians.
