On February 12, 2001, Roy Tennant (Manager, eScholarship Web & Services Design, California Digital Library) announced the launch of the XML4Lib Electronic Discussion Forum for the discussion of the Extensible Markup Language (XML) and its use in libraries. The purpose of the XML4Lib electronic discussion is to assist library staff in learning about XML and how to apply it to library problems and opportunities. XML4Lib is specifically aimed toward librarians and library staff, but anyone is welcome to join the discussion. Those not interested in a library-oriented Web discussion may wish to join one of the general XML discussions. All messages must relate, however slightly, to the general topic of XML."
