What’s in a Name? Presentation Guidelines for Serial Publications
Welcome, fellow CRS members,
Please make use of this forum as you will. It is intended to serve as a central location for scholars at all levels to engage in discussions towards the end of creating producing education materials, whether those materials be publications, presentations, Webinars, or some other form of intellectual communication. We on the CRS Education, Research & Publications Committee hope you will establish discussions regarding the work you're doing and the work you'd like to see someone else do (we don't all have the time or wherewithal to do research at any level, but that doesn't mean we don't seek answers!).
It is further our hope that this forum may result in collaborators finding one another, writers and presenters finding avenues for sharing their work in a pre-pub/present state, scholars finding topics of interest upon which to focus their attentions, and everyone finding out answers to questions.
Chair, CRS ER&P
Welcome to our Midwinter agenda (not necessarily in order of importance):
1. Committee members, please input your agenda items here.
2. Review status of Guide to Managing Microforms. I don't think you need to re-acquiant yourself with the most recent revision of this prospective publication, either the authors are wrapping it up or they're not, either of which situation we'll learn in Boston.
3. Should we extend our role in ALCTS CRS to hosting a wiki somewhere (ALA Connect?) that encourages members to post calls for collaborators; abstracts for works-in-progress; bibliographic information for publications of interest, etc.?
4. Discuss what we can do to ramp up publications. Should we send blasts/calls for papers to listservs? Should we solicit presentations or offer authors a forum for presenting their work in our role as the Pubs and Research committee?
5. How often do we need to meet face-to-face? Twice a year (Annual and Midwinter), once a year (Annual or Midwinter; not until we bring in a new member after this upcoming meeting?
