Special Issue of International Journal of Librarianship: Data Librarianship

[Posted on behalf of Kristi Thompson]

The special issue of the International Journal of Librarianship on Data Librarianship I guest edited has been published. One feature in particular that might be of interest to IASSISTers is an article in which we interviewed a number of people who had prominent and interesting careers in the field and asked them to share their thoughts on how data services have changes over the course of their careers, as well as advice for newbies.

Our interviewees include IASSIST President Tuomas J. Alaterä, as well as Ann Green, Guangjing Li (China), Jian Qin, Wendy Watkins, and Lynn Woolfrey. Hopefully it will help spread the IASSIST word to some audiences we don't always reach! (Readership for this journal is largely in Asia so far.)

Article (open access): https://doi.org/10.23974/ijol.2017.vol2.1.35

Other articles and book reviews will also be of interest. Table of contents:
