Subject: New Age Navigation: Innovative e-Journal Interfaces
_New Age Navigation: Innovative E-Journal Interfaces_
I am pleased to announce the formal publication of my latest Magnum Opus [:-)
"New Age Navigation: Innovative Information Interfaces for Electronic
Journals" _The Serials Librarian_ 45(2)(2003): 87-123
ABSTRACT. While it is typical for electronic journals to offer conventional
search features similar to those provided by electronic databases, a select
number of e-journals have also made available higher-level access options
as well. In this article, we review several novel technologies and
implementations that creatively exploit the inherent potential of the
digital environment to further facilitate use of e-collections. We conclude
with speculation on the functionalities of a next-generation e-journal
interface that are likely to emerge in the near future.
A offprint/preprint copy of the article is available at [
The article served as the basis of a presentation I gave at the _Internet
Librarian 2003 Conference_ [ http://www.infotoday.com/il2003/] in
Monterey, California in early November.
[BTW: A *Most* Excellent Conference] [

As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.
We also know
There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don't know
We don't know.
