In the News

—Mary Ellen K. Davis Editor & Publisher

A reader called last week and said during our conversation, “C&RL News has become an invaluable source of Internet information.” I have heard comments similar to that one from a variety of sources and am pleased to provide a number of articles dealing with the Internet in this issue:

Larry Schankman offers us his seven habits of highly successful Intemauts in “How to become an Internet power user.”

Bob Pasicznyuk continues our series of subject lists on the Internet by providing us with a list of Internet resources dealing with the space sciences. Did you know that you can keep up with NASA’s space shuttle activities and Hubble telescope data via the Internet? Pasicznyuk tells us how.

Sara Amato introduces a graphic downloaded from the Internet in her “Internet Reviews” column. It may lose a bit in the translation from screen image to print image but we wanted to share with you an example of the variety of images available on the Net.

In the “Washington Hotline” Lynne Bradley gives us updates about legislative and government activities dealing with the National Information Infrastructure. We welcome Lynne, deputy executive director of ALA’s Washington Office, who debuts this month as the new author of the “Hotline.” Our thanks to Carol Henderson who so ably gave us the “hot” news from D.C. for so many years.

C&RL Newsis just one way ACRL is keeping you up-to-date with the latest policies and practices on the Internet and other issues in academic librarianship. ACRL’s 7th National Conference is also responding to your need for the latest information. I hope you are planning to join us in Pittsburgh, March 29-April 1, 1995. And if you want not only the latest information but also the chance to have fun, then check out Marcia Duncan Lowry’s article on the tours and events we have planned for Pittsburgh.
