Publisher news from SLA Baltimore
I’m back from Baltimore, tired but happy with the conference. I hardly posted on EngLib; my entries appeared on the Information Technology Division blog where they were more relevant.
But there were nonetheless many interesting sessions pertaining to sci-tech information and many exhibitors in the Hall (I even got the impression that they actually outnumbered the business people this year but I have no hard data on that). Since others have already posted interesting news before, let me just link to their excellent posts, instead of trying to start from scratch:
- Paula Hane, of the Information Today blog, talked about Springer’s new e-book collection
- Terri Vogel, on the ACS blog, posted about the sci-tech Poster Session
- Doug Storm, of the same blog, posted about ACS pricing
- Of course, the SLA-PAM blog has good postings on all things of interest to the Division
. Stephen Leary did the same on the SLA Conference blog.
Finally, and maybe this will have nothing to do with science or engineering, SAGE is announcing a new e-reference collection but would not give me details until ALA in New Orleans has passed. ??!! Why then advertise it on their exhibitor mailcard?
