Government Documents: New eNewsletter: FDLP Connection (Vol 1. No. 1) Now Available
FDLP=Federal Depository Library Program
From a Column by Mary Alice Baish, Superintendent of Documents:
Welcome to the inaugural issue of the FDLP Connection: A monthly newsletter featuring insights from the FDL community. It was an honor to be appointed Superintendent of Documents by our new Public Printer, Bill Boarman, in January. I have just completed my first six months at GPO and have enjoyed the wonderful opportunity to work closely with the dedicated staff in Library Services and Content Management (LSCM). You can read more about what they do in the “Get to Know GPO” featured article. This will be a regular monthly column, and I know you’ll enjoy learning more about our talented staff, their special skills, important projects and strong commitment to the FDLP as much as I have.
Last but not least, as the saying goes, “it takes a village.” I’d like to take this opportunity to publicly thank our FDLP Connection co-editors, Kelly Seifert and Cindy Etkin, as well as their hard-working and enthusiastic committee members, for their thoughtful planning to successfully turn our concept of a monthly e-newsletter into reality. I am very grateful to the contributing authors of this inaugural issue and hope that many of you will share your knowledge and expertise by submitting articles for future issues. I would also like to extend a very special thank-you to Karen Sieger, Katy Davis, and the rest of the creative Web Content team for providing us all with such a visually attractive and easy-to use format. We hope you enjoy it and sign-up to receive future issues via email!
