The University of Iowa Libraries’ Information Arcade has embarked on a new electronic publishing project. Bailiwick is a space where academic passions can be realized in digital media as highly specialized Web sites. Bailiwick web sites are experimental in nature, provide comprehensive scholarly resources, support an unique electronic tool, or explore a narrow, highly specialized topic. The success of each Bailiwick depends upon the trust that site creators have in the facilities and staff of the Information Arcade. A unique service model is employed that provides consultation with liaisons who have academic backgrounds as well as design and technical expertise.
