College and Research Libraries Journal is going Open Access

C&RL is going open access! They plan on placing articles online six months after publication of the print version, which is a fine place to start. Good for them.

And for kicks – here’s an extremely old article of mine, from 1998: Library Home Page Design: A Comparison of Page Layouts for Front-ends of ARL Library Web Sites. If nothing else, someone might get a kick out of reading it and comparing today’s library websites with my findings from 1998.
