In the News

My thanks to Peter Hanff and the Bancroft Library for providing the wonderful painting of San Francisco for our cover this month. As you plan your trip to San Fran- cisco for the ALA Annual Conference in June, I hope you will find time to attend some of ACRL’s programs. ACRL members have worked hard to provide you with interesting educational opportunities. A list of the programs appears on pages 328-29 in this issue.

We have also included in this issue a list of all of the meetings scheduled by ACRL units (pages 330-35). I would like to know if you find this a useful feature. Call me toll free at 1- (800) 545-2433, ext. 2511 and leave a message on my voice mail to let me know if you’d like to continue having this schedule printed in C&RL News.

Speaking of news, this issue moves our News from the Field column to the front of the magazine so that you can find the news more readily.

Nick Burckel gives us some more news with his report of the executive seminar sponsored by EBSCO at the last Midwinter Meeting describing the plans that CARL, Elsevier, and EBSCO have for electronic publishing and document delivery.

This issue also includes an interesting synthesis of the nation’s preservation program prepared by Sherry Byrne and Barbara Van Deventer.

Anne Beaubien, ACRL’s 53rd president, discusses the importance of recruitment in this month’s “The Way I See It.”

Be sure to review the recently approved Standards for Faculty Status for College and University Librarians also included in this issue.
