As a member of the editorial board for the just-launched Code4Lib Journal, I’m pleased to point the way to the inaugural issue. The Code4Lib Journal covers the intersection of libraries, technology, and the future. The idea for the journal came out of last year’s Code4Lib conference, but the journal’s content comes from across the spectrum of libraries.
