Abstract:

Purpose: – The aim of this paper is to spotlight the numerous ways librarians publish in the electronic environment. Design/methodology/approach: – The paper surveys several web sites written by or about librarians or libraries. Findings: – The study finds that while librarians still publish in traditional print formats, the narrow scope of many of their topics lend themselves to web-based publishing better. Originality/value: – Even when an author's efforts may result in a book, the narrow focus of a topic, coupled with the stagnate nature of a printed work, are barriers to new or updated information. Web-based publications, both in tandem and independent of print, provide a dynamic environment to keep information up-to-date and current. The web also provides an opportunity to publish material that otherwise would not be published.
