Commercial digest (3 messages) SERIALST Moderator 09 Jan 2009 21:28 UTC


SERIALST Commercial Digest pilot project: Since June 2008, the SERIALST
moderators have been experimenting with compiling and distributing a
Commercial Digest once a week, on Friday afternoons, with messages
containing informational content from commercial bodies (i.e., publishers,
vendors, agents, etc.). The moderators review submitted messages for
informational content that may interest our subscribers. We reserve the
right to reject messages that are purely for advertising or
product/service solicitation, with little or no informational content
beyond the solicitation, as well as other content that are not within the
scope and purpose guidelines of SERIALST (see:

If you have thoughts or feedback about the Commercial digest, or other
aspects of SERIALST, please let us hear from you.  Contact information
for the SERIALST moderators is at:

Project MUSE User Group Breakfast at ALA Midwinter

Please join Project MUSE on Saturday, January 24, at our annual User Group
Meeting during the American Library Association's Midwinter Meeting in
Denver. Enjoy an old-fashioned country breakfast buffet "Rocky Mountain
Style" while you learn about the latest developments in MUSE content and
functionality. Prospective as well as current MUSE subscribers are
encouraged to attend.

In addition to reviewing the new titles joining MUSE in 2009, we'll be
looking at features on the new website that enhance the search process. A
highlight of the meeting is sure to be the debut of a vodcast on linked
subject headings. As usual, there will be ample time for questions and
discussion about Project MUSE.

Saturday, January 24, 2009
8:00 am-9:00 am
