Subject: Special Issue of Information Technology and Libraries on Bibliomining: Data Mining for Libraries, deadline Mar 15, 2003

The December 2004 issue of Information Technology and Libraries (http://www.lita.org/ital/), the peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the ALA’s Library and Information Technology Association, will be dedicated to the bibliomining process and will be guest edited by Scott Nicholson, faculty member at Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies.

Bibliomining is the combination of data mining, bibliometrics, statistics, and reporting tools used to extract patterns of behavior-based artifacts from library systems. The bibliomining process involves the larger issues of data warehousing, standards for library transactions, and privacy of patron information. More information about bibliomining can be found at http://bibliomining.org.

ITAL is seeking articles about data warehousing in libraries, data mining in libraries (theory or application), or applicable works about privacy of transactional library data from ethical or legal standpoints in either traditional or digital library settings. Scholars, practitioners, and library school students are all welcome to submit articles.

Authors interested should submit a title and abstract no longer than 100 words by March 15th. Full articles (typically 3000-5000 words in length) are due by June 15th.

Questions and submissions should be directed to Scott Nicholson at srnichol@syr.edu.
