If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the brand new, online,Â Library Student Journal.Â I haven’t had the chance to read through the articles yet, but it definitely looks interesting.Â
First of all, I think it’s great that there is a journal dedicated to library student writing.Â When I was in school, I thought about trying to get a couple of my papers published.Â But I had no idea where to begin and the process seemed a bit intimidating as a “lowly” library student.Â (By the way, the author of one of the articles attends my MLIS alma mater!)
Second, the publication is continuing the trend of peer-reviewed articles that are available for free (to both the readers and the authors)Â online.Â
Finally, readers can comment on each article, providing a forum of discussion on each topic.
I would love to see more publications of this type in the library and information sciences field (and if anyone knows of any, please let me know!)
