We are so proud! Tennessee Libraries has been approved and added to the DOAJ. DOAJ has the goal of "The aim of the DOAJ is to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals, thereby promoting their increased usage and impact. The DOAJ aims to be comprehensive and cover all open access scientific and scholarly journals that use a quality control system to guarantee the content. In short, the DOAJ aims to be THE one stop shop for users of open access journals."
Congratulations to the editor, Amy York, who submitted TL for inclusion, the TL Editorial Board, our Peer Reviewers, and the Publications Advisory Board. It was all of the work of our past and present participants in these positions who enabled TL to meet the DOAJ selection criteria.

Sad news today: Nashville’s own John Egerton, one of the region’s strongest supporters of all things literary, has died at the age of 78.
Born in Atlanta, Egerton moved to Nashville in the 1960s and spent much of his career chronicling the city and the Civil Rights movement. Later in life, he was known best as a food writer, writing and editing several influential books on Southern cuisine and launching the Southern Foodways Alliance in 1999.
