Subject: Call for Reporters - ALA Midwinter

_Library Collections, Acquisitions and Technical Services_ _(LCATS)_ has
always made an effort to cover many of the programs and discussion groups
at the ALA conferences related to our scope.  A number of meetings for
which I would like to provide a report are still available and I am
soliciting your help and interest in covering any of these programs and
discussion groups.

Reports are published much like the Review Section in _LCATS_.  The reports
are published in a single combined article with each report having a
separate byline.  Each author receives reprints and proofs of their section
for review.  Reports are generally 2-6 double-spaced pages depending on the
content of the meeting covered.  I encourage reporters to cover the content
and points made by the speakers so that these reports are useful to readers
who could not attend the conference. In some cases, lengthy programs might
warrant longer reports.

If you are interested in covering any of the programs and discussion groups
which follow, please respond via e-mail ( as soon as
possible.  Your finished report would be due to me by 2-15-00.  The report
can be sent via e-mail in WordPerfect or Word format.   More extensive
guidelines for the report are available at  Sample reports
appear in recent issues of the journal.

Thanks in advance for your help.
