Many of you on this listserv have kindly written
great entries for the Encyclopedia of Library and
Information Sciences, Third Edition, edited by me
and Mary Niles Maack. The encyclopedia was
published at the end of December (with a 2010 pub
We are hearing reports, however, of individual
authors who have not received your one year's
access to the online form of the encyclopedia,
which was a part of your contract. (Emails were
sent by the publisher to all participating
authors earlier this year.) Given the vagaries
of spam-ful email these days, this result may be
due to the company-sourced email accidentally
going into your junk mail.
Bottom line: If you have NOT received your
promised reward for writing from the publisher,
please email Susan Lee at the publisher
(elis at taylorandfrancis.com), with a copy to me.
If you don't hear a response from her within ten
days, email me again with this information.
AND TO EVERYONE: Don't forget to nudge your local
librarian to buy ELIS 3!! Seven big, beautiful
volumes, 5742 pages, 565 article-length entries
on LIS, archives, museum studies, informatics,
knowledge management, information systems,
records management, document and genre theory,
bibliography, and social studies of information.
Available online too.
Types of articles included: Information
disciplines and sub-disciplines; key concepts and
theories; research areas; institutions;
literatures, genres, standards, projects;
network technology and information systems;
people using cultural resources; organizations;
"country" articles addressing the cultural
infrastructure of each included country; and
history of various relevant topics.
We've got Brenda Dervin on Sense-making, Marcia
Bates on Information, Carol Kuhlthau on her
model, Don Kraft on Fuzzy Set Theory, Howard
White on bibliometrics, Tom Wilson on Information
Behavior Models, Ingwersen and Järvelin on
information retrieval, Karen Fisher on
Information Needs, plus a slew more of ASIST
authors, including nearly 30 entries on the
information seeking of various groups, dozens of
articles on legal and social issues, dozens more
on information systems and networks, and still
dozens more on historical topics throughout the
above-mentioned disciplinary areas.
ELIS is not just a collection of topics, but
rather a coherent, organized set of topics,
intended to cover most of the major topics in the
listed fields. And great for assigning to your
students in classes!
