ShelfLife shelved for good

One of the weekly newsletters I regularly followed for in-depth summaries of trends and innovative projects in the infoworld, ShelfLife, has called it quits after 195 issues.

ShelfLife was a publication of RLG, the not-for-profit corporation of universities, national libraries, archives, museums and other information institutions.

Their amazing archives are available for browsing. From museum digitization to open source software debates, from discussions on how to cope with information overload to the use of the Web to save the heritage of the Maoris, from the disappearance of government information from databases in the wake of the Sept 11 attacks to the pros and cons of metasearching, it was all at my fingertips via ShelfLife.

Wow. Gonna miss you.
