Cites & Insights 9:6, May 2009, available
Cites & Insights 9:6, May 2009, is now available.
The 28-page issue is PDF as usual, although HTML separates are available for most essays (from the links below).
This issue includes:
Two million and counting: Notes on the first two million words of C&I, including the most widely-read issues (or, rather, "what I know about readership except for the first two years") and most widely-read essays since 2004. Also a note on one "why" for the two major essays--the other "why" being life changes getting in the way of original essays.
Most of the first 65 pages of Public Library Blogs: 252 Examples, excluding some overall lists of included blogs and the individual blog profiles.

Most of the first 62 pages of Academic Library Blogs: 231 Examples, excluding individual blog profiles and one section that's an exact duplicate of the same section in Public Library Blogs. What I said above, but more so.
