For our current two-part special issues, we are focusing on computing and libraries. We originally aimed for a single issue on this topic, but our guest editors Boyd Rayward and Rebecca Graham did such a fine job that we had enough material for more. The bad news is that we now have some papers in the queue, and I apologize to those authors who have to wait an additional issue to see their efforts in print. The good news is that we now have a backlog of materials appropriate for an archival journal.
