quadrennial Trisociety symposium will be hosted next year by the Chemistry
Division of SLA, June 9/02 in LA. The call for papers was handed out,
and is available at: http://listserv.indiana.edu/scripts/wa.exe?A2=ind0111&L=chminf-l&O=A&P=4158
The theme is "Electronic Chemistry Collections: Dealing with Chemistry
Resources in Electronic Formats". Proposals are due by January
15, 2002 to:
The Procter & Gamble Company
6300 Center Hill Avenue
Cincinnati, OH 45224
Dunker is doing most of the work for this, and our monetary contribution

programs for the 2002 Annual Meeting were discussed. The theme for next
year's meeting is Knowledge, Connections and Community. (More info at:
Helman and Molly Moss will be working on a program about scientific
digital libraries, possibly to be cosponsored by SIG DL. Possible ideas
are something about the National SMETE (science, mathematics, engineering
and technology education) Digital Library and the Public Library of
and Julie Hurd will be working on a program about new publishing models
in science, to be cosponsored by SIG PUB. Ideas for speakers include
Berkeley, SPARC and BioOne.
and Penny O'Connor will be working on a program about digital reference.
There was some discussion on how to tie digital reference to Sci-Tech
issues, including service and licensing issues, topical collaboration
rather than institutional, tech schools where most reference is sci-tech,
and 24/7 evidence-based medicine. Possible cosponsors include USE and
is doing a program that we will cosponsor on Ebooks. Deborah Helman
and Scott Lapinski are working on this. Some ideas included the interactive
CRC handbooks and interactive Chemistry texts.
for program proposals is February 4, 2002.
the BIOSIS student award winner who was at the meeting, Janne Cookman.
The CAS award winner was Louise Gruenberg of UIUC. She was recognized
at the SIG Cabinet Meeting.
was another call for anyone interested in becoming Chair-Elect, with
no one volunteering.
was given about the 3 programs that SIG STI organized for this conference
(Building Digital Repositories: A New Role for Academic Libraries, From

Journals, and Genomics, Proteomics and Beyond: Meeting the Information
Needs of Bioinformatics Researchers).
to thank Deborah Helman for her work as Chair, but she was too busy
talking up the SIG to new members.
