"J. of Electronic Resources in Law Libraries".

Haworth Press (Binghamton, NY) will begin the publication of "Journal of Electronic Resources in Law Libraries" with an issue later in the second quarter of the year. An annual subscription price for the new quarterly journal has not been set.

Haworth said the new title will focus on the digital resources and services that law libraries provide and the educational opportunities that the technology affords. It will include current research that affects the kinds of resources available to law libraries and the enhanced services law libraries may provide. It will be targeted to "a diverse group of individuals and institutions," including law librarians, academics in information science, and legal practitioners.

Topics to be addressed in the journal include: the creation of electronic legal resources, user interfaces to electronic resources, access to multiple databases, adding value to electronic resources, services provided by law libraries via electronic resources, licensing, acquisition and collection development issues, and techniques for encouraging the use of electronic resources in law libraries.

Haworth produces nine other journals in the criminal justice field, including "Journal of Offender Rehabilitation," "Journal of School Violence," "Women & Criminal Justice" and "Journal of Ethnicity in Criminal Justice."
