Colección: Revista Interamericana de Bibliografía (RIB)
During 1996 and 1997, the Inter-American Review of Bibliography has faced various structural and financial difficulties that have affected its timely publication. Perhaps most significant has been the effort to keep the cost of the RIB accessible to all of its readers, in spite of the permanently increasing costs related to its production. It is for this reason that as of 1998 the frequency with which the journal is published will be changed; three issues will now be published each year, but with added material.
We would also like to point out two other important additions. The first, which was initiated as of 1996, refers to the sucessful implementation of an electronic mail system to facilitate communications with our authors and collaborators. The results have been positive and have allowed us to begin consolidating this quick and dynamic resource. The second addition is the upcoming initiation of the RIB homepage on the Internet, programmed for early 1998. In it, readers as well as the general public will find not only a cumulative index of previous issues of the RIB, but also updated information regarding the work of our publication within the framework of the General Secretariat of the OAS.
Given the priorities and challenges facing the Region as we approach the new millennium, the content of our journal will continue its practice of not limiting itself to an era, a problem or a school of thought, but rather continue to present interdisciplinary focuses regarding the relevant topics of Humanities and Social Sciences of our time.
