Olivia M. A. Madison, ALCTS President
COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE, AND COMMUNICATE!
Moreover, we communicate with each other through our extensive and successful programming and publication activities:
Two search processes have or will beginning shortly for editors of LRTS, LRTS book reviews, and the ALCTS Paper Series. A search process for a new permanent editor of Library Resources and Technical Services ( LRTS) will be initiated this summer to replace John Budd, who has submitted his resignation. In the interim, the ALCTS Executive Committee has appointed Peggy Johnson, Associate University Librarian at the University of Minnesota and former ALCTS President, as editor through volume 48 of 2004. Peggy looks forward to working with the LRTS Editorial Board to provide the ALCTS membership with the robust and respected journal that is our association's common goal. Additionally, she will be working closely with the ALCTS Publications Committee. Peggy is happy to speak with prospective LRTS authors as well as those with manuscripts currently in the review process. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and her phone number is (612) 624-2312.
Please let me know of any ideas that you might have to improve our communication efforts!
