FREE E-Book:  We are pleased to announce that Irene Farkas-Conn’s “From
Documentation to Information Science / The Beginnings and Early Development
of the American Documentation Institute-American Society for Information
Science” is now available full text, no fee at

We received the rights to make this available from ABC-CLIO
and worked with Access Innovations to convert the text and find the best
software to display a full text book and allow commenting.

PASIG:  ASIST had begun doing administrative and implementation work with
the Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG), which was
started by Sun and then Oracle.  Their meeting and other information is at
http://www.asis.org/Pasig/.  We expect this to be complementary to our
Research Data Access and Preservation Summit meetings.

Next meeting is October 17-19, 2012, The Gresham Hotel Dublin
