Cites & Insights 5:4, March 2004, is now available for downloading. 22 pages, PDF as usual.
Taking Seth Finkelstein's suggestion on tabloid-style marketing to heart, here's what's included:
- Did NIH back down to Big STM--or was this a reasonable compromise?
Library Access to Scholarship
- Who gets first-name treatment in C&I?
Bibs & Blather
- You call this a community?
Perspective: The Dangling Conversation
- Does anyone care about multichannel sound or ethics?
- Chills, thrills, public-domain flicks
Offtopic Perspective: Family Classics 50 Movie Pack, Part 1
- Is a short story a book--and would you read Moby Dick on a cell phone?
Ebooks, Etext and PoD
Beginning with this issue, Cites & Insights uses Adobe Acrobat 7 to support text-to-speech and bookmarks. You'll need at least Acrobat Reader 5, and 6 or 7 for the accessibility and organization bookmarks (7 is faster than 6).
This issue also has a few more test HTML files--the selective form that may or may not continue. These particular files should be stable indefinitely. Go to the home page to check them out.
And now that it's clear that I really, truly suck at creating tabloid-style headlines, don't expect to see them again.
