Abstract Major changes have swept through the publishing industry since 2000 when the American Geological Institute began compiling the Antarctic Bibliography and the Bibliography on Cold Regions Science and Technology. Publications were typically available in print and were distributed through traditional channels such as libraries and information centers. In today's publishing model electronic journals are the norm, e-books have gained acceptance, and government agencies regularly have their publications openly available. Each development has necessitated changes in the day-to-day process of compiling the Bibliographies. The effort expended adapting to new publishing environments has been significant. (mte)
