E-Serials Cataloging

I just received this note from Gerry McKiernan. Be aware this is one large PDF file, not one for each paper. So it does take a while to load.

I am pleased to announce that free full-text (PDF) access to the entire contents of "E-Serials Cataloging: Access to Continuing and Integrating Resources via the Catalog and the Web," (The Serials Librarian 41 (3-4) 2002) edited by Jim Cole and Wayne Jones is now available from this site and here

This special issue contains my latest article "E is for Everything: The Extra-Ordinary, Evoluntionay [e-]Journal" which is a review of key features of The Eclectic Journal.

Here's a partial Table of Contents for the issue.
