On April 15th, 2014, the Art Libraries Society of North America launched the first issue of its newest publication, the Multimedia & Technology Reviews, an e-publication made freely available on the ARLIS/NA website.
The Multimedia & Technology Reviews (M&T Reviews) targets projects, products, events, and issues within the broad realm of multimedia and technology as they pertain to arts scholarship, research, and librarianship. While assessing current products and projects, these reviews are also designed to engage readers in a conversation about how technologies and multimedia are being or can be deployed within our profession and by our constituents. The issues are published bi-monthly, alternating with the publication schedule of the ARLIS/NA Reviews.
M&T Reviews is managed by co-editors Hannah Bennett, Elizabeth Schaub, and Emilee Mathews, who also serves as the appointed liaison to the ARLIS/NA Reference and Information Services Section (RISS) to ensure that an area of the M&T Reviews directly reflects the sorts of tools and resources of interest the RISS membership. Reviews are written by volunteer reviewers, elected by the M&T Reviews co-editors. One does not need to be a member of ARLIS/NA or a professional librarian in order to get involved with this publication. Those interested in volunteering to review are encouraged to read over the publication’s policies and guidelines.
Issues are published on the Multimedia & Technology Reviews website within the ARLIS/NA’s organizational website.
