Volunteer Reporters Sought to Summarize Programs

Be an ALCTS Reporter and See Your Name in the Newsletter!

The ALCTS Newsletter Online editor is looking once again for members to write summary reports on our division's preconferences and programs for the fall newsletter. These summaries allow all members to benefit from the events our division is sponsoring at Annual Conference. Both veteran and novice reporters are encouraged to volunteer for these assignments. If you’d like to be a reporter in Atlanta, here’s what you need to do:

  • Select a program or preconference from the list of ALCTS programs in this issue.
  • Send an e-mail message to the editor, Miriam Palm, and indicate which event you’d like to cover. You’ll get a prompt reply to let you know if your program is available, but it’s a good idea to include alternate choices in case the one you’re most interested in happens to be taken.
  • Attend the program or preconference and take good notes!
  • Write up a brief report (three hundred words for programs, five hundred words for preconferences) including names of speakers, topics covered, and whatever other aspects you think important: major points of emphasis, conclusions reached, audience response, and so on.
  • Send the report by e-mail (as either a message or attached file) to Miriam Palm no later than July 5, 2002.
