In the News

In this issue Patricia Breivik shares with us the progress ACRL has made in implementing its new Strategic Plan (page 10). She also offers a look at the development of the interpretation of the ALA Library Bill of Rights with regard to access to electronic information, services, and networks (page 29). This article details ACRL’s concerns with the draft interpretation and seeks your comments.

Access to electronic information is an important issue in the profession as more and more information is available electronically. On page 12 Ann Koopman and Sharon Hay describe their use of electronic access to information at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.

As libraries generate more and more electronic information and/or provide the gateway to it, it becomes important to have guidelines for developing the electronic product. Nancy McClements and Cheryl Becker share their standards for writing Web pages (page 16).

The “Conference Circuit” has a report from the Off-Campus Library Services Conference (page 35) thanks to Rick Bean.

Our Internet resource lists continue this month with a look at resources for health policy thanks to Lynne M. Stuart and Dena H. Hutto (page 19).

Be sure to check out the pullout brochure in this issue. ACRL’s Nashville National Conference Executive Committee has issued its “Call for Participation.” Conference organizers are seeking dynamic presentations exploring the conference theme, “Choosing Our Futures.” This year participants will be selected based upon their abstracts so that presentations can be finalized just prior to the National Conference, keeping the information as up-to-the-minute as possible.

Finally, let me extend my thanks to Kit Dusky and Eldon Tamblyn who have once again provided C&RL News with an annual index. Please note the index is separately paginated so that you can easily pull it out and place it with your 1995 issues.
