Smart Libraries Newsletter debuts

Effective with the January 2003 issue, Library Systems Newsletter™ boasts a new name: Smart Libraries Newsletter™.

The publication carried its original title proudly for 22 volumes. The newsletter's mission - to provide useful, vital coverage of library technology in practice - has not changed. Over time, however, the perception and definition of "library systems" has. Just as the newsletter's focus and voice have been updated to incorporate more digital library and electronic serials information, its name has changed to indicate the authors' awareness and acknowledgement of that evolution.

Throughout the year, contributing authors Priscilla Caplan, Judy Luther and Andrew Pace provide accurate, comprehensive news and information about the technology that drives today's successful libraries. Pace and Anne Salter will assess the technology market in March and April's Annual Survey of Library Automation Vendors.
