Digital Watch

Monday, October 3rd, 2005

via Open Access News:

Digital Watch is an Open Access online academic journal, which has been created by graduate students in the University of Pittsburgh School of Information Sciences to offer a forum for the discussion of issues relating to digital libraries and contemporary culture. The tone of Digital Watch reflects our intent to foster a lively and vigorous discussion of digital culture, one free of jargon and (unintentional) obfuscation. Future issues will be opened to contributions from the broader graduate and professional community of library and information science.
