This issue of Information Research is rather unusual in that it apparently consists of only one paper - a report on the Department of Information Studies' Second International Symposium on Networked Learner Support from Sarah Ashton. However, all is not as it seems: there are links from the report to the Symposium web-site and to the twelve papers presented at the Symposium. The reader of Information Research, therefore, has an opportunity to catch up on developments in this relatively new area of information science and librarianship research. The papers themselves come from around the world, giving a truly international flavour to the event and to this issue of the journal.

Remeber that you get advance notice of new issues of Information Research if you sign up.
