WESSWEB has two goals: to provide western Europe specialists with information for their work to provide WESS members with information about the Section. WESSWEB does not intend to replicate the excellent guides prepared in Europe, but to supplement them and make links among them from an international perspective.
What is WESS?
The Western European Studies Section (WESS) is a section within the Association of College and Research Libraries, which is itself a division of the American Library Association. WESS is professionally involved in the acquisition, organization, and use of information sources originating in or related to Western European countries. Our aim is to promote the improvement of library services supporting study and research in Western European affairs from ancient times to the present.
WessWeb depends on volunteers...
WessWeb needs people to develop new projects, to coordinate areas, to manage pages, to locate interesting new URLs or new addresses for existing URLs. If you're interested in participating at any level, you can ask for a password for wiki editing (wess @ byu.edu).
Policy for WESSWEB is set by the WESS Publications Committee. Individual sections are edited by:
- Founding coordinator: James Campbell
- General coordinator through 2007: Reinhart Sonnenburg
- General coordinator and wiki administrator, 2008- : Richard Hacken
- British Studies: Gordon Anderson
- Classics Studies: Blake Landor
