In particular, the committee will oversee the communication activities of the RBMS News Editor, the RBMS electronic discussion list, and the RBMS Web site, as well as other forms of electronic communication; and to represent the section’s viewpoints on publishing to ACRL and ALA.
Comment: The Publications Committee’s primary purpose is to coordinate rather than to originate publications. However, it has assumed an active role in support of RBM both by suggesting topics and proposing authors for articles and by securing funding. The committee charge was revised by the RBMS Executive Committee on 8 July 1996.
Coordination: The RBMS section chair, the RBMS Member-At-Large liaison to the Publications Committee, and the following ex-officio Publications Committee members: the editor(s) of the RBMS Newsletter; the RBMS web editors; the RBMS electronic discussion list administrator; and the editor of RBM. The chair of the Publications Committee serves as liaison to the ACRL Publications Committee.
