Want to edit?

This announcement went out on Newslib-L. If you're a News Division member and interested in helping out, check this out:

Hello NewsLibbers,

Want to get more involved in the News Division? Our quarterly publication, "News Library News," needs a new editor. Ron Larson's excellent term as editor is drawing to a close and we're looking for someone to fill his shoes.

It's a two-year commitment, publishing four issues a year. But don't let that scare you off! It's a lot of fun and is a great way to learn about new developments in other libraries and the industry. You'll also get a chance to talk with lots of other Division members.

The job involves soliciting and editing stories, writing a column and overseeing production. No design skills are needed - that is all done by a professional designer.

So if you're curious, creative, a stickler for details and interested in taking on this job, please let me know (off-list) by July 30.

Both Ron and I would be happy to answer any questions. If you want to take a look at past issues of News Library News, go to
