In the News

—Mary Ellen K. Davis Editor & Publisher

“What kind of association do you want ACRL to be?” Dadie Perlov first asked the leaders at the ACRL leadership session at the ALA Annual Conference in Miami.

Now past-president Tom Kirk asks for your answers to this question. “As you read the annual report, I ask you to reflect: ‘Is this the kind of association I want’’ Whatever your answer, I hope you will give us the benefit of your insight.”

And this year there is a new way to share your ideas with ACRL officers, members, and staff—ACRL Forum. ACRL-FRM is the new unmoderated listserv open to all for discussion of issues pertinent to ACRL, academic librarian- ship, and higher education. Send your thoughts about your vision for ACRL to ACRL-FRM. To subscribe send the message “Sub ACRL-FRM your name” to “listserv@uicvm” for bitnet users and “” for Internet users. We all look forward to hearing from you.

In this issue we are also asking your help in identifying candidates for the editorship of
