Cites & Insights 11:6, June/July 2011, is now available for downloading at http://citesandinsights.info/civ11i6.pdf
Barring a pleasant surprise, this is the final issue before ALA. The first essay in the 28-page issue (PDF as usual, but all essays except the last are also available in HTML form from http://citesandinsights.info/) may help explain why that is.
Bibs & Blather (pp. 1-2)
Where do we go from here?
Trends & Quick Takes (pp. 2-9)
Eight mini-commentaries and three quick takes.
disContent (pp. 9-12)
A twofer: Two of my favorite “disContent” columns.
Interesting & Peculiar Products (pp. 12-20)
Twentyone product discussions (where “product” is interpreted loosely) and two editor’s choice/roundups.
The CD-ROM Project (pp. 20-23)
The subtitle says it (almost) all: Some Work, Many Don’t. The two that worked are both excellent–but so were some of the eight that didn’t.
My Back Pages (pp. 23-28)
One essay that’s way too long for MBP and five other chunks of snark.
