The latest High Energy Physics Library Webzine is out with the usual array of fine articles, this time concentrating on eprints/archives/preservation. I find it interesting (and instructive) that there exists two such incredibly wonderful FREE, ONLINE journals supporting scitech librarianship. The lesson from HEPLWZ and ISTL is that this is obviously a sustainable model, and I really expect that other similar niche web journals should sprout up in other areas. In fact, I would be interested in hearing about others in the comments to this post.
The most relevant HEPLWZ articles for us here are:
- "The eDoc-Server Project: Building an Institutional Repository for the Max Planck Society" by Gerhard Beier and Theresa Velden.
- "EULER - A Real Virtual Library for Mathematics" by Michael Jost and Hans J. Becker
