Annual Conference Information
Margaret Rohdy of the University of Pennsylvania’s Van Pelt Library has just assumed her duties as the new Web publications editor at ALCTS. Fresh from a stint as book review editor for LRTS, Rohdy is beginning a two-year appointment.
The ALCTS board has charged the Web publications editor with the following assignments:
Rohdy serves as an ex-officio member of the ALCTS Publications Committee, reporting to and working with that group on issues related to Web publishing. The position is a trial one that the Publications Committee will review at 2004 Annual Conference to recommend either a permanent position or its discontinuance.
Even before her position officially began, Rohdy met with the ALCTS Publications Committee at the 2002 Annual Meeting and reported on “Best Practices in Web Publishing: A Stanford Workshop for Nonprofits,” an event she attended on the association’s behalf in May. Rohdy notes that she is “organizing my work around the parts of my charge—that means a focus on content and on the editorial process that moves content from an idea to a publication on the Web.” To share thoughts on Web publishing with Rohdy, e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
