    I am the owner and managing director of Information Automation Limited (IAL), a company that specialises in research, consultancy and training for the information profession. We are particularly interested in all forms of electronic information resources (e-journals, e-books, etc) and I teach a course in electronic publishing at the Department of Information Studies in Aberystwyth. Drilling down still further(!), my interests centre on the quality and evaluation of electronic information, and in the thinking that underpins activities in library and information science.

    New for Information Literacy

    The following text comes from Sheila Webber's Information Literacy Weblog, which reminded me to announce the launch of both The Information Literacy Website and the Journal of Information Literacy here:
    One important event at the LILAC conference was the launch of the Information Literacy Website, a new UK portal to information literacy information. It is a product of a partnership between the CILIP CSG Information Literacy Group, SCONUL, Museums and Libraries Association, and Higher Education Academy. It is generously being hosted by Eduserv. There has been a collaborative approach to content gathering, and Ruth Stubbings from Loughborough University has been coordinating this initiative. The website was officially “unveiled” by Jonathan Douglas from the MLA. It is to be found at the memorable web address I have contributed some information about research resources, and also I am going to be editor of a new journal hosted on the site, the Journal of information literacy. You will be hearing more about this in due course! The first issue of JIL (it’s a free web journal) comes out in October.
