FROM THE DESK OF THE EDITOR :

In this issue we draw your attention once again to the use of Online Dictionaries, where the latest terms and definitions are only a few computer clicks away!

GoogleScholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. Read all about this innovative search engine, specially created for academics and students.

Electronic books as well as the digitised Arnold Theiler Collection are further examples of our growing e-information collections. Wouldn’t the Old Man just have loved living in this day and age! In fact, this issue includes the second in our series “Conversations with Sir Arnold,” showing that the research of his time is just as important today as in the early 1900’s.

This issue introduces our most recent staff additions, the 2 after-hours students.

By browsing through this issue you will once again be keeping yourself up-to-date on the latest happenings in the information world, with special focus on OP.
