Vol. 19, No. 3/Spring 1997
The Aside Bar
by Catherine Kitchell
I have been having a very enlightening "conversation" through email with Pete Basofin, Barbara Semonche and Carolyn Edds about how members of the News Division communicate with each other. Pete is the Director of Publications for the division and my boss in this job! Barbara maintains NewsLib, our Internet mailing list, and Carolyn maintains the division web site. Each of the three division communication vehicles; this newsletter, the web site, and the listserv have at least slightly different purposes and users. It is very interesting thinking how they should all work together.
Included on the web site are articles, job notices, lists of division officers and other official information about the news library profession. Included is an electronic version of News Library News. To reach it, point your web browser at http://sunsite.unc.edu/slanews/.
NewsLib is an unmoderated, self-governing listserv. To join you need an email address. 1) Address a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. 2) Enter nothing in the subject line. 3) Type the following in the message area: SUBSCRIBE NewsLib (your full name). 4) Send the message. You will receive a computer-generated message back welcoming you to the list.
If you have suggestions for us, individually or as a group, on how we can better serve the division, please let us know.
In the last issue, the article on Donna Scheeder stated that she would be the first News Division member elected President. We wish Donna well in her bid, but note that Kitty Scott, another Division member, was President of SLA in 1992-93.
