While poking around the blogs available on WordPress, I came across a link to a newer online journal, Evidence Based Library and Information Practice that will likely be of interest to many CUS members and friends:

“EBLIP is an open access, peer reviewed journal published quarterly by the University of Alberta Learning Services and supported by an international team of editorial advisors. The purpose of the journal is to provide a forum for librarians and other information professionals to discover research that may contribute to decision making in professional practice. EBLIP publishes original research and commentary on the topic of evidence based library and information practice, as well as reviews of previously published research (evidence summaries) on a wide number of topics.”

“IT has never been easier to read up on a favorite topic, whether it’s an obscure philosophy, a tiny insect or an overexposed pop star. Just don’t count on being able to thumb through the printed pages of an encyclopedia to do it.”  

An interesting article at the New York Times, Week in Review  (March 16, 2008) “Start Writing the Eulogies for Print Encyclopedias”.
