Hi all. I'm forwarding the following message from Lori Widzinski, editor
MJ, an excellent online journal for academic media librarianship
(actually, the journal's contents are generally broad enough to be of
interest to almost anyone doing media in libraries). Lori and her
co-editor have mounted a review database which is purty nifty. Have a look.

>Hello everyone -
>I'm pleased to announce a new database for the audiovisual reviews in MC
>Journal. The a/v reviews have been a successful addition to the journal,
>and we've been growing steadily since we debuted as a column in the Spring
>1997 issue. New reviews are added all the time, so we are no longer tied to
>an issue, but readers can now search our database. Please take a look -
>We've been "tweaking" several little problems that have appeared, so if you
>notice any typos or other parts of the database that don't work quite right,
>please let me know.
>We've also updated the design of the entire MC Journal Web site. This was a
>summer student project and I think we've worked out the bugs, but again if
>you notice something that isn't working, please let me know. The design is
>not radically different - just a little face lift.
>A call for papers will be coming out in the next few weeks. Terry McCormack
>and I are discussing some possible topics to focus an issue around. Any
>ideas are welcome, so please let us know what you think. We're always
>looking for new reviewers for videos and cd-rom programs to add to the new
>database, so if you are interested, or if any of your colleagues are
>interested, send me a message.
>Enjoy the remaining few days of summer!
