For many years Shauna Hicks has been reviewing journals and magazines for the avid readers of the Aus-archivists listserv. Last year she finally hung up her editing pencil and asked me to take over.
It’s been an interesting time. More and more journals are available online, some to listserv members and the general public, others by free or paid subscription. I’ve tended to stick with the journals that are in hardcopy or limited access, so that the review will encourage others to think about obtaining that one edition or volume.
I’ve been reading and reviewing articles and then saving comments to a draft email for later posting, but it occurred to me that now might be the time to take In the mailbox to a new format, and experiment with web 2.0.
