Information Technology and Libraries (ITAL)
ITAL is moving: for access to the latest issue, click here.
As announced to LITA members in early January 2012, ITAL is is adopting an open-access, e-only publishing model. This will help ensure the long-term viability of ITAL by making it more accessible, more current, more relevant, and more environmentally friendly. ITAL will continue to feature high-quality articles that have undergone a rigorous peer-review process, but it will also begin expanding content to include more case studies, commentary, and information about topics and trends of interest to the LITA community and beyond. Look for a new scope statement for ITAL shortly.
With the first open-access, e-only issue launched, our attention will be turned to updating and improving the ITAL website and expanding the back content available. Our goal is to have all of the back issues of both ITAL and its predecessor, Journal of Library Automation (JOLA), openly available from the ITAL site. We’ll also be exploring ways to better integrate the ITALica blog and the ITAL preprints site with the main site. Suggestions and feedback are welcome: please send to Bob Gerrity, ITAL Editor, at email@example.com

ITAL tables of contents and abstracts where available begins with volume 1, 1982. With volume 15, no. 4, the full text of some articles and columns are included. Beginning with volume 23, no.2, the complete full text of each issue is available in both HTML and PDF formats.
JOLA , the Journal of Library Automation, was the predecessor of ITAL. Volumes 1 - 14 appeared 1968 - 1981. We are pleased to be able to offer the Tables of Contents and many abstracts here.
