Editor’s Corner

Howdy everyone,

This is my last issue as lead editor of DttP. I am turning over the lead editorship to Jennifer Castle. Jennifer and I have been working together on the last couple of issues and I know she is going to be a great editor and I look forward to reading her issues. I have really enjoyed serving as editor and working with this fantastic community.

I could not have done this alone, and I would once again like to thank the columnists, editors and reviewers who helped me manage the journal, and to all the authors who submitted manuscripts as well as the library school faculty who submit student papers. I also would like to thank Tim Clifford who makes DttP look fantastic year after year. Final shoutouts go to the Chairs of GODORT and members of GODORT’s Publication committee during my tenure as lead editor.

In this last editorial I would like to celebrate some of DttP’s accomplishments. I acquired statistics for the top twenty article views of all time. Now this count is since DttP moved online, but I am still impressed with the numbers. It is also interesting that a lot of these articles are from our Student Papers’ issues.
