Information on new IT products, information services, software upgrades, etc. now floods the STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Medicine) library environment. While some STEM-orientated blogs and other web-based services offer general coverage of this flow of information, no single source focuses on the STEM publisher-librarian interface.
While originally conceived to support just the DASER Summits, this blog will now expand to report on news items, issues, and announcements dealing with digital archives, e-libraries, repositories and other STEM-related products and services, with a focus (but not exclusive view) on the librarian-publisher interface, and how we can improve communication between these two professions in support of the authors and readers of scholarly publications.
It is our intention to develop a number of blog authors and editors from both professions to manage this blog, not necessarily just from the ASIST community. If you are interested in participating in this process, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
