IFLA Reports from Buenos Aires and Other Events on the Horizon

Miriam Palm, ALCTS Newsletter Online Editor

miriam palm, alcts editor This issue contains coverage of ALCTS-related activities at the recent IFLA meeting in Buenos Aires. Our division has official representatives to six sections of IFLA, and I am pleased to include an additional report covering the Audiovisual and Multimedia Section. You may not have traveled to Argentina, but I know you will enjoy reading these reports.

It is time to submit nominations for the awards our division will give next summer, so please consider nominating colleagues and others you know in ALCTS that will be worthy recipients of these honors. We are announcing three symposia events that will be held at Midwinter in Boston, which we hope you will attend. This issue contains a new Publications column, listing works that are available for review in our journal Library Resources and Technical Services.

I want to offer special thanks to Charles Wilt and Julie Reese, currently the two staff in our office in Chicago. With the resignations of Andrea Tobias in July and Kirsten Ahlen in August, Charles and Julie are soldiering on and keeping the most critical division projects on track. Julie recently has earned her certification as a Certified Meeting Professional; please see the separate article about her achievement.
