May 10, 2004, Medford, NJ—Information Today, Inc. (ITI) is pleased to announce the publication of the Bowker Annual Library and Book Trade Almanac 2004—49th Edition. For nearly 50 years, librarians and publishers have relied on the Bowker Annual for the latest facts on what’s happening in the library and book trade world. Called “the librarian’s best friend” by Reference and Research Book News, the Bowker Annual works as an on-the-job answer book, a statistical information resource, and a planning and research guide, as well as a directory and calendar.

With more than 800 pages of facts, figures, names, numbers, lists, and reports affecting libraries and publishers, the Bowker Annual will bring you practical industry information and informed analyses on the topics that matter most. In addition to the expert articles and reports from federal agencies and libraries outlining developments in publishing, the Bowker Annual’s Special Reports section details some of the most pressing concerns influencing the industry. In this edition, the Special Reports focus on the following:

• What does the USA Patriot Act mean to libraries? Thomas Susman discusses the number of new statutes enacted to combat terrorism and their effect on libraries
• Looking at the growth of digital journals, Nancy John and Edward Valauskas explore the important catalysts that are driving the production of journals in digital form.
• Examining the preservation of media in a time of growth. Evelyn Frangakis delves into the future and highlights the subsequent challenges with preserving a broad range of media.
