Above the Fold

Above the Fold is an electronic publication that seeks to bring attention to items of interest from beyond our normal reading sphere.

This serial publication serves a broad international readership of information professionals and consists of a compendium of articles that relate to the work of the OCLC Research Library Partnership and the information context in which we're all operating—but readers might not see in the course of their regular awareness routines. Each citation includes a short annotation explaining why we think the article is of interest. And each note is attributed to the staff member whose thoughts on the issue and its relevance can be tapped.

Reactions to Above the Fold periodically crop up in the Above the Fold blog. Readers are welcome to join the conversation, share their thoughts, and follow @ATFOCLC on Twitter.
