Un nouveau périodique professionnel semble avoir fait son apparition : il s'agit du "Journal of Web Librarianship", la revue du bibliogeek ^^, et est proposé par l'éditeur Haworth Press qui propose déjà de nombreux autres titres professionnels anglo-américains comme "Journal of Library & Information Services in Distance Learning", "Journal of Electronic Resources in Medical Libraries", "Journal of Electronic Resources in Law Libraries", "Journal of Access Services"...

Ce nouveau titre est destiné aux bibliothécaires en charges de produits numériques, de services de bibliothèques numérique et aux chercheurs qui réflechissent sur ces questions :

This high quality quarterly journal presents peer-reviewed theoretical, research, and practical articles from leading experts related to Web librarianship in its many facets. Topics focus specifically on the issues that relate to the Web, including the integration of the Web into various aspects of library functions, Web page design, search engines, information architecture, and future aspects of Web librarianship. (...)
The Journal of Web Librarianship offers regular columns or sections on:

  • social communities and virtual spaces on the Web
  • web-related library projects in countries beyond the United States
