Roy Tennant has published "The Oldest Internet Publication You've Never Heard Of" in Digital Shift.
Current Cites is now 25 years old. It was established by the Library Technology Watch Program at the University of California, Berkeley Library in 1990. It went online on the University of California's Melvyl system in February 1991, and it was distributed on the University of Houston's PACS-L discussion list starting eight months later. In January 1992, it became one of the first digital publications distributed on the University of Houston's PACS-P discussion list, and it was distributed on this list until May 2014. Starting in 2005, it was distributed by OCLC's WebJunction.org. As of 2011, the list has been supported by the University of Notre Dame and the website has been provided by Roy Tennant.
Current Cites is published monthly by Roy and written by Roy and his team of contributors. This serial has always been open access.
Congratulations, Roy on 25 years of publication!
