"Current Cites" turns 15 years old this month

The popular current awareness service Current Cites turns 15 years old this month. The monthly electronic newsletter features citations and evaluative abstracts of articles in information technology and librarianship considered by the Current Cites team as the most significant for that month. Sources of citations include professional magazines, journals, web sites and occasionally books. The newsletter goes out to a subscription base of over 3,000 individual subscribers and is either forwarded or featured in additional mailing lists, online forums, paper publications, and blogs. Each issue typically contains about a dozen one-paragraph citations, distributed toward the end of each month. Currency is the publication's strength, with some sources appearing only days (or hours!) before it is cited and published in Current Cites
