The 32-page issue (PDF as usual, but HTML separates are available--see the links below, and also the caveat about the second item) includes:

It's the end of a volume (except for the index, later in November) and the end of an era--YBP's five-year sponsorship. I'm looking for a new sponsor. Also, But Still They Blog: The Liblog Landscape 2007-2009 should be out some time this year...

Save paper: If you want this printed, do the whole issue.
