The elected officers have begun constructing an online presence for the group, currently we have a blog up and running and hope to maximize it’s potential within the year.
Additionally, we are in the beginning stages to open lines of communication between academic librarians, within the structure of NMLA but also via online efforts to reach academic librarians across the state. If you have ideas for content or activities that would be appropriate for the Academic SIG, please suggest them to Sarah Allison.
