JSTOR news

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has decided to discontinue its relationship with JSTOR, effective December 31, 2007. The AAAS and JSTOR began working together in 1998 to include Science and Scientific Monthly, a related title that has ceased publication, in the JSTOR archive.
No content will be removed from the archive. JSTOR will continue to preserve Science from 1880 to 2002, as well as Scientific Monthly, which was published
from 1915 to 1957. The Moving Wall will become fixed. With the addition of the 2002 issues in early 2008, JSTOR will cease to digitize and archive any further issues of Science. Access will continue. JSTOR will continue to provide access to Science from 1880 to 2002, as well as to all issues of Scientific Monthly. This includes supporting persistent links to articles in Science and Scientific Monthly from online resources and web pages.

Infobib : Library blogs in Russia

As I have already posted, I was very surprised and flattered, when in the end of May I was asked to write a sort of article about Russian biblioblogoshere for the international project Infobib. I also must confess that I first agreed and then started thinking what I will be writing about, as at that moment I was sure I was the only librarian blogger in Russia. The situation has changed recently. I have learned that my friend and coworker Marianna Ponikarovskaya has a kind of blog on library related topics. And in the end of June Russian State Library has also started blogging. So, one can say that nowadays there are at least three library blogs in Russia.

The rest of the post read on Infobib next week. As soon as it appears there, I'll post a link.
