My wife always laughs at me when I talk about my master’s degree program in Library Science. She imagines me working in a library. (I LOVE libraries BTW). It only lasted for 1 semester because my CD-ROM publishing company really started taking off and needed my full-time attention. But I learned some valuable things while in the program. One of the main things was becoming familiar with a few of the major publishers and publications in the library market.
Information Today is one such company. It has many good publications. One that I love and read cover to cover is EContent. The readership is probably fairly small, but the articles are well written and I love the research. It’s all about search, content business models, content management, news feeds, subscription databases, search engines, RSS feeds, XML, digital rights, syndication, and more. I learn here about companies that rarely get covered in the main stream technology press.
