Electronic Publishing

Brown, Elizabeth W., and Andrea L. Duda. "Electronic Publishing Programs in Science and Technology, Part 1: The Journals" Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship 13 (Fall 1996-Winter 1997) (http://www.library.ucsb.edu/istl/96fall/brown-duda.html).-This survey article summarizes information on the electronic publishing programs of 14 commercial and professional association publishers in science and technology fields. The tabular format makes it easy to quickly survey the offerings. Read it online and you can click through to the publishers' Web sites. Part two of the article will focus on abstracting and indexing services.-RT

Litman, Jessica. "Copyright Law and Electronic Access to Information" First Monday 4 (http://www.firstmonday.dk).-Litman's article is adapted from a speech she gave to LITA at the 1996 meeting of the American Library Association. It's a skillful summation of the tension between "fair use" values and market values. Readers will also appreciate the easy-to-follow guide to the first draft of the "Lehman Report," which set the stage for the late 1996 international debate about copyright.-TH

"Metadata, Dublin Core and USMARC: A Review of Current Efforts" MARBI Discussion Paper no. 99, Library of Congress, January 21, 1997 (gopher: //marvel.loc.gov/OO/.listarch/usmarc/dp99.doc).-Describing the essential elements of a text document or image for the purposes of providing access to it is the process of collecting metadata, or information about information.

A simple and yet extensible standard for describing digital objects would allow just about anyone to describe their files in a way that could be interpreted by almost anyone else and thus provide easy access to a huge amount of digital content. Right now the draft standard that appears to be making the greatest headway is called the Dublin Core, named for the town in Ohio where the first meeting was held to begin the process (the home of OCLC). This serves as a useful overview of the Dublin Core effort to date, as well as how the Dublin Core elements can be mapped to the USMARC format.-RT

Samuelson, Pamela. "On Authors' Rights in Cyberspace: Questioning the Need for New International Rules on Authors' Rights in Cyberspace" First Monday 4 (http://www.firstmonday.dk).-Pam Samuelson is the best person to read in order to sort out intellectual property and electronic media. As a professor of law and information management at UC Berkeley, she has followed the perils facing "fair use" for years. …
