Announcing the Code4Lib Journal, Issue 1

The Code4Lib Journal released its first issue today. There’s articles on a variety of topics: catalogs, LCSH, digital repositories…. Much praise is due to Jonathan Rochkind, the other members of the editorial committee, the authors, and everyone who offered their input over the last eight months that we’ve been putting this together.

For this first issue, I’ve been playing the role of web developer for the Journal. We’re using WordPress as our CMS, with a custom template and a few hacks/plugins to make everything run smoothly. As time permits, I’ll try to blog about some of the work we did to make the website happen.
