Publications Committee Minutes - 2014 Annual
- ACRL WESS Publications Committee
- ALA Annual Meeting, Las Vegas
- Saturday, June 28, 2014
- 10:30-11:30 A.M.
- Las Vegas Hotel, Ballroom G
Present: Gaby Divay ; Richard Hacken ; Rebecca Malek-Wiley ; Jonathan Marner
Regrets: Jen Bonnet ; Sharon Clayton ; Mara M. Egherman
- I. Welcome and introductions: Rebecca was introduced as the new Chair for 2014/15
- II. WESS Newsletter: all were in agreement that Jen Bonnet's Spring Issue was a great success, and that the new Column Editors Kathleen Smith & Sharon Clayton had a very successful maiden-voyage, so to speak.
- III. WESSWeb Report: Dick Hacken modestly accepted the lavish praise heaped upon him for his outstanding website. He not only spoke to the site's usage statistics, which are impressive, but also to Agenda Point IV, i.e., if the general membership WESS-L might fall under the mandate of the Publications Committee. His preliminary investigation with the hosting service for WESSWeb seemed to indictate that for minimal cost the listserv could be covered by this enterprise.
- IV. It was agreed that Virtual Meetings, as increasingly arranged by other ACRL Sections or Interest Groups like LES or Digital Humanities, might be considered for the WESS Publications Committee as well. Rebecca will pursue the matter.
