Abstract:. The success of the web as a research tool has dramatically changed the library's role in the exposure of library catalogs. This issue on the Evolution of Bibliographic Data Exchange is full of thoughtful and informative articles describing new metadata initiatives across the library landscape. The rise of new metadata initiatives reflects the need to respond to this change and to increase our effectiveness in the exchange and management of library metadata. This is a useful continuation of the dialog on how we can improve data exchange. It is the guest editor's hope that we see more recommendations and experiments inspired by the pragmatic and optimistic spirit of these authors.
