ACRL partners with HighWire Press
"ACRL has announced a new partnership with HighWire Press, a division of the Stanford University Libraries, to provide online hosting of College & Research Libraries (C&RL), College & Research Libraries News (C&RL News), and RBM: A Journal of Rare Books, Manuscripts, and Cultural Heritage. Choice Reviews Online, the online product of ACRL's Middletown, CT based publishing unit, Choice, will also migrate to HighWire. The move of ACRL's publications from the association Website to the HighWire platform will provide a number of benefits including improved search capabilities both within and across publications, increased Web 2.0 functionality, and online access for individual and institutional non-member subscribers. The HighWire platform will also provide a richer user experience for Choice Reviews Online subscribers. C&RL, C&RL News and RBM will launch on HighWire by the end of 2009 and Choice Reviews Online in 2010"
