I am so pleased that The Code4Lib Journal’s first issue is out. The projects described are really interesting and what I like most is that they include an explanation of how they did it (with code!). Far too often, you read articles about a library-related project that really don’t give you any idea how it was done or if it’s do-able at your library. While I know I can’t replicate any of what is described in the issue, it’s great to know what other librarians are working on and what’s possible. And for those who can, there are some pretty darn good ideas in here.

It’s terrific to see a new journal dedicated to really practical applications of technology in libraries. Check it out!
