[CODE4LIB] PDF: Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography: 2008 Annual Edition

2010-06-21 Thread Charles W. Bailey, Jr.
This June is the twenty-first anniversary of PACS-L, an
early mailing list. PACS-L facilitated the establishment in
August 1989 of The Public-Access Computer Systems Review
(PACS Review), one of the first open access journals
published on the Internet. In turn, a PACS Review experiment
resulted in the establishment of the Scholarly Electronic
Publishing Bibliography in October 1996, which led to the
establishment of Digital Scholarship in April 2005. See A
Look Back at 21 Years as an Open Access Publisher for


To commemorate these events, Digital Scholarship has
released a free PDF version of the Scholarly Electronic
Publishing Bibliography: 2008 Annual Edition.

Hmm, interesting.  Facebook is on the way out, anyway.  The question is what
social network, if any, will replace it.

It's really beautiful. Like a good map or timetable, you can pore over
it for hours. I want a big copy for the office.

Can you explain it to me a little? For example, what does it mean to
say that XML or MPEG-21 has a much stronger connection to the library
community—as defined by uptake, intent and appropriateness—than MARC
and LCSH? That seems literally backwards. One can perhaps argue
appropriateness in various ways, but MARC and LCSH are ubiquitous
and intended for libraries in a way the others are not.

I also suggest changing scholarly texts to texts. There are lots
of texts which aren't really scholarly texts that libraries—even
academic libraries—care about, aren't there? Also, while putting them
together has virtues, might there be cause to separate book-texts and
article-texts? They certainly differ considerably when it comes to the
update and appropriateness of various standards.
