Digital Library of Information Science and Technology (DLIST) Launched

The School of Information Resources and Library Science and the Arizona
Health Sciences Library at the University of Arizona have launched DLIST,
the Digital Library of Information Science and Technology.  DLIST is
available at http://dlist.sir.arizona.edu.

The objective of DLIST is to serve as a repository of electronic resources
in the domains of Library and Information Science (LIS) and Information
Technology (IT).  DLIST is running on Open Archives Initiative (OAI)
compliant Eprints v.2 software developed at the University of Southampton.
Eprints software, recently heralded as the future of scholarly
communication, facilitates the development of institutional and subject
archives and self-archiving practices.

Researchers and practitioners in LIS and IT create a wealth of content not
limited to formal papers. To capture this wealth of information and create a
library that is as useful as possible, DLIST materials include:

Published papers
Data sets
Instructional and help materials

We are actively seeking partners who can contribute to our archive building
and collection development efforts. If you have materials of this nature,
please consider depositing them with DLIST for use and access to a wider

We invite authors in the areas of Library and Information Science, and
Information Technology to self-register and deposit their papers. Authors
can choose to participate by contributing their research papers (either
before or after publication).

Seed monies for DLIST are from the University of Arizona College of Social
and Behavioral Sciences and the Proposition 301 funded initiative of the
Internet Technology Commerce and Design Institute.
