Science & Technology Libraries provides you with the kind of information and insight that will help you build a stronger collection, improve services, and feel confident that you are always well-informed of the latest in sci-tech librarianship. Science & Technology Libraries is the only journal devoted exclusively to science and technology libraries and information centers regardless of their type of sponsorship and regardless of the fields of science or technology with which they may be involved. STL is also unique in that every issue focuses on a single theme, allowing for in-depth treatment of the issues that are most important to you as a sci-tech librarian. In the past, STL has provided readers with the knowledge to select and implement the best turnkey computer system for their library; train end-users to use sci-tech databases; build a strong collection on such topics as acid rain and genetic engineering; preserve sci-tech materials; benefit from the rich collections and helpful services of sci-tech libraries serving zoological gardens, museums, aquariums, societies, and institutes; and catalog and index sci-tech materials more quickly and effectively. Science & Technology Libraries includes several regular feature sections: New Reference Works in Science and Technology, edited by Donna Lee, identifies an reviews new reference materials issued by non-trade sources as well as those issued by trade publishers. Reviews are conveniently divided into subject areas and represent a variety of subjects about which every sci-tech librarian needs to know; Sci-Tech Collections, edited by Tony Stankus, provides descriptions of the key literature on specific sci-tech topics of current interest; Sci-Tech in Review, edited by Karla Pearce, provides annotated citations of books, dissertations, journal articles, or technical reports which deal with sci-tech libraries and information centers, keeping readers aware of literature they might not otherwise read; Sci-Tech Online, edited by Ellen Nagle, keeps readers up-to-date on the major developments in online searching relavent to sci-tech libraries. This column provides descriptions of new databases (both bibliographic and non-bibliographic), discusses changes in existing databases, analyzes trends in the field of online retrieval, and notes publications, search aids, and training materials of interest.
