Electronic Resources Revies - a New E Journal

nachfolgend der Hinweis auf eine neue elektronische Rezensionszeitschrift
ueber Digitale Medien (auf Datentraegern und im Netz), die insbesondere fuer
die Zielgruppe wissenschaftliche und Spezial-Bibliotheken relevant sind
(bzw. sein sollen).

Die 1. Ausgabe (im PDF-Format) kann  noch entgeltfrei bezogen werden. Die 11
Rezensionen konzentrieren sich auf Produkte, die vermutlich vorzugsweise aus
US- und UK-Perspektive interessant sind. 

IMHO sind die meisten von uns derzeit mit "Informationsmittel fuer
Bibliotheken" und den diversen Besprechungsrubriken in bibliothekarischen
Zeitschriften wie z.B. "Digitale Medien" in ZfBB besser bedient.

Freundliche Gruesse von
