Recent Issue: The Australian Library Journal

This title isn’t on the journal list I maintain, but they recently had a special issue titled: The Library–Archive Confluence: The eScholarship Research Centre, University of Melbourne.

From Ross Harvey’s introduction: “This theme issue of the Australian Library Journal has the title The LibraryArchive Confluence: The eScholarship Research Centre, University of Melbourne. I have long held the view that librarians have much to learn from archival theory and practice – a view that holds greater currency as both segments of the information profession strive to develop new ways of working to manage digital materials. Consequently, I am delighted that the nine articles in this issue explore archival practice as exemplified in the activities of the eScholarship Research Centre (ESRC) at the University of Melbourne. The ESRC is unusual in that it is a research centre embedded in a library and, as such, its activities will command the interest of the Journal’s primary readership.”
