Call for Participation: Reference Publishing Advisory Committee (part of RUSA)

Reference Publishing Advisory Committee, part of RUSA Collection Development and Evaluation Section, is looking for addition committee members for this year. This is the only committee within ALA charged to foster interactions among reference librarians, collection development librarians/reference collection bibliographer/selector, and reference publishing industry staff.

For this upcoming Mid-Winter Meeting, we plan to hold a discussion forum focusing on cataloging and discovery issues related to e-reference publishing. At annual, the committee will be offering a program looking at future trends and issues related to reference publishing. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like more information about this committee. We hope to hold  moderated discussions on other reference publishing topics online if there are more members for this committee. If you are willing to act as facilitator or moderators or contribute in other ways but not able to serve on the committee this year, please contact me directly.

Virtual committee appointment is available. For questions related to committee appointment, please contact Wayne Bivens-Tatum. His  email address is rbivens [at] Princeton [dot] edu. There is no additional charge to add CODES to your membership if you are current RUSA member.
