The ACRL Budget and Finance Committee (B&F) has asked individual Sections to consider the following:
“…whether a printed section newsletter is still vital to your section membership. The B &F realize that a number of the sections are already making the newsletter available electronically. One suggestion to trim the budget was to ask sections if having a print fall newsletter and then transitioning to an electronic newsletter in the spring would support section members. Printing and mailing only one newsletter each would save the association about $12,600. “
Please post comments, questions, concerns on this proposal here, or via the WSS-L listserv. We have long published the newsletter electronically as well as in print, but now is our opportunity to provide feedback to the B&F Committee about this issue.
