Thanks to Roy Tennant for Serving as Editor of Current Cites, the Second Oldest Digital Serial on the Internet

Last month, Roy Tennant stepped down as Editor of Current Cites. He turned the editing of this always useful free monthly roundup of works of current interest over to Edward Lim. Roy became Editor in August 2000, replacing Teri Andrews Rinne, who served for six years. Previously, he was a contributor to the publication.

In July 2015, Roy 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.

ITHAKA: "Bruce Heterick Named Senior VP of Open Collections & Infrastructure"

ITHAKA has released "Bruce Heterick Named Senior VP of Open Collections & Infrastructure."

Here's an excerpt:

In his new role, Bruce will lead our efforts to work with libraries and consortia to accelerate the availability and utility of openly accessible collections by enabling them to digitize, upload, catalogue, publish, and preserve their materials on the JSTOR platform. Our goal is to help libraries leverage the community-wide investment in JSTOR by placing their own collections on one of the most heavily used research platforms in the world. This will create new opportunities for research and learning by assembling related content from across institutional boundaries, together with the vast collection of high-quality books, journals, and images already available on JSTOR.
