New ASIS&T Blog and upcoming web site redesign
ASIS&T HQ has launched an official ASIS&T Blog, led by new ASIS&T Social Media Manager Diane Rasmussen Pennington, and is seeking contributions!
This blog is meant to be a forum for any issues related to information science. I’d love to see lively discussions and shared ideas about our field in this virtual space. Anyone can post. Do you have a research idea you’d like to share? Best practice tips in your specialty? Want to comment on a new JASIST article? Anything else? If you would like to post, email me, and I’ll be happy to create an author account for you. I will maintain editorial oversight as the Social Media Manager, but I will not censor anyone or control topics; I will just check for appropriateness (no sales, etc.) and for correct grammar and formatting.
We love to see SIG SI members contributing in all potential venues — the new blog, the ASIS&T Bulletin, journals, and conferences — so we strongly encourage you to participate and contribute if you can!
The current blog post also discusses the upcoming ASIS&T web site redesign, which all members should be at least aware of going forward. I (Adam, your SIG SI Communications Officer) was there in Maryland on Wednesday for the design workshop led by Seven Heads Design. Speaking for myself, I think it went really well; the concerns of SIGs, chapters, and other key stakeholders are being heard, and we’ll have a much-improved ASIS&T site going forward, I think! Be sure to keep in touch about the redesign process by following the progress on the ASIS&T Blog.
