Cites & Insights 9:13 (December 2009) is now available.
The 32-page issue (PDF as usual, but HTML separates are available–see the links below, and also the caveat about the second item) includes:
It’s the end of a volume (except for the index, later in November) and the end of an era–YBP’s five-year sponsorship. I’m looking for a new sponsor. Also, But Still They Blog: The Liblog Landscape 2007-2009 should be out some time this year…
Commentaries on library values and purpose, including some upbeat commentaries. What’s not here: any commentaries on Taiga, Darien or 101. Caveat: The HTML version is provided for online reading–but if you print it out, it will almost certainly be longer than the PDF of the entire issue. Save paper: If you want this printed, do the whole issue.
From “comedy in the classical sense” (that is, most characters survive throughout the film) to little-known but quite funny British films and two versions of a Ben Hecht play, with different genders playing the same lead.
Reminder: This isn’t quite the end of Volume 9. Some time later, probably in November, I’ll publish the index and title page–but for those who want a bound set of Volume 9, there’s a better route: Some time after that, I’ll publish the whole volume (by far the longest to date, and that was not intentional) on Lulu, for the same $50 as volumes 6, 7 and 8.
