Mwuah ha ha ha haaa! Finally it’s my turn. I hold the power of the editorial. (Can you tell
I’m writing this around Halloween?) Seriously now, I’ve been intimately and extensively involved with Information Technology and Libraries for eleven years, yet this is the first time I’ve escaped from behind the editing scenes to address the readership directly. As managing editor for seven of the eleven volumes (18–22 and 27–28) and an editorial board member reviewing manuscripts (vols. 23–26), I am honored Marc agreed to let me be guest editor for this theme issue.
