    An expanding vision of collaboration by Gaetz, Ivan

    This third issue of Collaborative Librarianship attempts to grasp aspects of this expanding vision. Both Steve Fisher’s article on the birth of CARL in the 1970s and Martha Yee’s post-print article (briefly annotated) on the cooperative cataloging services of the Library of Congress in the early 1900s highlight the strong commitment libraries historically have made to explore innovative ways of working together. Such remarkable commitment has helped pave the way for future opportunities in library collaboration.

    Again a cottage industry by Gaetz, Ivan

    If Gaetz interprets correctly the views of Jason Epstein, elder statesman of the publishing world, Collaborative Librarianship in fact takes its place in the rebirthing of a cottage industry. The Random House College Dictionary defines “cottage industry” as, “an industry in which the product is made in a self-employed worker’s home (in contrast with a factory).” Beginning in the 1450's in homes and shops, printing and publishing progressed through the centuries to become enormous, multinational corporate empires. Now, all that is changing. With the emergence of the internet, social networking and mobile technologies of one kind or another, a new paradigm comes into play, a new model described by Epstein as a cottage industry long forgotten in the big business of publishing—and you are invited to be a part of it! Collaborative Librarianship invites you to become directly involved in this new cottage industry as authors, editors, reviewers, readers, responders—working where you are, anywhere in the world, creatively, autonomously, and exhibiting much diversity—interacting with information and knowledge. You have an opportunity to participate in meaningful ways in this new world of publishing anticipated by Jason Epstein.

No Brief Candle provides perspectives on the importance of collaboration for libraries of the 21st century. The new journal, Collaborative Librarianship, builds on the great traditions of the past and seeks to promote library networking, cooperation and partnerships in new ways.
