The 2015 ARLIS/NA Conference is quickly approaching. We are looking for someone to jump into the role of vice-moderator of the Reference and Information Services Section (RISS). Don’t be shy! New faces and new ideas are welcome. You would be working with Beth Hylen as she moves into the role of moderator. Your term would last one year, with the hope that you would transition into the role of moderator upon the commencement of the 2016 ARLIS/NA Conference. If you are interested in reference, this is a great opportunity to meet others with similar interests and shape the conversation moving forward. RISS includes a lively bunch of information professionals from a myriad of backgrounds.
Finally, a few bullet point announcements:
- If you would like to author a RISS post for Multimedia & Technology Reviews, please contact Emilee Mathews at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please let me know if you are interested in becoming Vice-Moderator for RISS in 2015.
- Our 2nd RISS Journal Club meeting will be on January 22nd at 3:00pm EASTERN and will discuss the article As Researchers Turn to Google, Libraries Navigate the Messy World of Discovery Tools.
- We will be meeting on Sunday, March 22, 2015 from 1:00-2:00pm at the 2015 ARLIS/NA Conference in Fort Worth. This is a much better time slot than last year! Mark your calendars.
