WebJunction was formerly the host of a set of library email discussion lists that had been previously hosted by UC Berkeley. Here is current information about these lists.
A team of librarians and library staff monitors information technology literature in both print and digital forms, each month selecting only the best items to annotate for this free publication. The resulting issue of 8-12 annotated citations of current literature is emailed to a mailing list and is redistributed on other electronic fora. Edited by Roy Tennant; hosted by University of Notre Dame.
Founded in December, 1992, the PubLib discussion list is a lively online presence, generating 350-400 messages per month. It is specifically oriented toward issues relating to public librarianship. PubLib subscribers include librarians, library workers, library trustees, friends of libraries, library students and faculty, library journalists, and advocates of librarianship. Now hosted by OCLC.
Web4Lib is specifically aimed toward librarians and library staff involved in World-Wide Web management, but anyone is welcome to join the discussion. Those not interested in a library-oriented Web discussion may wish to join one of the general Web discussions hosted by the W3 Organization. There are presently around 4,700 subscribers world wide and an average of 5-10 messages a day. Hosted by Roy Tennant and the University of Notre Dame.
This listserv is for the discussion of the Extensible Markup Language (XML) and its use in, by, and for libraries and library users. XML is part of the international effort to apply knowledge organization standards to the realm of digital resources. The discussion is specific to librarians and library staff. Hosted by Roy Tennant and the University of Notre Dame.
This listserv is for anyone with a professional interest in interlibrary loan, document delivery and resource sharing. Archives are available from December 2003 onward. Now hosted by OCLC. See list administrator Andy Morton's blog for more information.
