I’ve been working on Magazines for Libraries (MFL) one way or another for over 25 years. When Bill Katz (my library school advisor, professor, and mentor) asked me to take on editing Magazines for Libraries, I was imbued with a strong commitment to continuing this unique work, which is unlike any other publication about, well, magazines for libraries. It’s written by and for librarians to use in building library collections, though I often hear from colleagues about how they use it in teaching library school courses and also as a readers’ advisory service.
Which is why I’m so psyched about the free new online Magazines for Libraries Update service we’re about to debut. You may know that we’ve been publishing some e-mail updates in between the annual volumes, but now we’re offering a free RSS service that will keep you up to date on for‚Äêpay, free, and Open Access titles that have not yet appeared in MFL. These are full-text reviews, written by the MFL subject specialists and edited by me ‚ all you need do is sign up to get them. To see sample reviews, click here and go to page 2.
Just go to: http://www.serialssolutions.com/magazines-for-libraries and click on the Subscribe to feed link. And please let me know (at: firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have suggestions for titles to review, or, even better, if you’re interested in becoming a Magazines for Libraries author.
More as it happens, magazine- and otherwise,
