Aim & Scope
A comprehensive and innovative journal, Internet Reference Services Quarterly highlights theoretical research and the practical application of Internet-related information services, sources, and resources. It uncovers emerging topics and leads you to an understanding of the ever-changing and powerful library resource - the Internet. As a librarian, from any size or type of library (research, academic, public, school, special, or corporate) no matter what discipline (administrative services, reference services, interlibrary loan, acquisitions, collection development, bibliographic instruction, cataloging, etc.), you will improve your level of service as this journal teaches you to utilize the Internet as a powerful reference tool. In addition to detailed, information-packed articles on library-related applications and resources of the Internet, IRSQ also gives you a book review section (Jill Hackenberg from the University at Buffalo is our Book Review Editor) for both full-length feature reviews and short synopsis reviews of monographs and serials on Internet use by libraries. Also included are "Hot" Bibliographies (Deborah A. Curry, SUNY College at Oswego, column editor) of new, emerging Internet topics of special interest and value to librarians, and "Siteseeing," edited by Samantha J. Gust, Niagara University, NY, designed to build awareness of the breadth and depth of available Web sites. This feature provides quick reviews of subject-specific Web sites of interest to librarians.
