D-Lib Magazine: The Magazine of the Digital Library Forum

The Digital Library Forum announces D-Lib Magazine, an on-line magazine,
which offers a broad range of technical and professional users
opportunities to browse, access, and comment on current work in digital
library research, advanced development, and implementation. The
magazine has been created by the Corporation for National Research
Initiatives (CNRI) on behalf of the Information Infrastructure
Technology and Applications (IITA) task group of the High Performance
Computing and Communications (HPCC) program.

The purpose of D-Lib Magazine is to nurture and facilitate communication
among the many agencies, organizations, institutions, and individuals
participating or interested in digital library research and its eventual
application. The magazine disseminates descriptions of current research
and implementation projects and provides for interaction with the
community through announcements and communications to the Editor. One
section of the magazine is devoted to pointers, which are used
throughout research stories and briefings as another means of furthering
interaction among users and disseminating important information.

The magazine is itself an experiment in electronic publishing. We have
no -- and propose no -- print analogue, and the editors will be most
intrigued by substantive articles that take advantage of the power of
hypermedia while retaining the strengths of traditional, print
publishing. In addition, D-Lib Magazine will be used as a testbed for
new methods of electronic publishing and techniques of digital
librarianship. So that these experiments will not prove a barrier to
users with slow network connections or less-than-the latest
technologies, the magazine will be issued in standard and advanced

The address of the publication is: dlib@cnri.reston.va.us

D-Lib Magazine is directed toward a broad technical and professional
audience and offers users a unique opportunity to access discussions of
current digital library research, advanced development, and
implementation; news about projects; pointers to useful sites; and to
participate in ongoing debates. D-Lib Forum is sponsored by the
Information Infrastructure Technology and Applications (IITA) task group
of the High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC). The editor
of D-Lib Magazine is Amy Friedlander.

D-Lib Magazine is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on
the Internet.
