Report of the East European Working Group
July 14, 1998, Anaheim
Submitted by Tracy Thompson
The East European working group was held on Tuesday, July 14, 1998. The eleven attendees represented a wide range of interest and expertise in the subject matter. Some members had a personal interest, others had a professional interest but lacked institutional support for collection development in this area, and others had intensive institutional collection development interest. In attendance were Malo Bernal, Mary Strouse, Jim Licke, Xinh Luu, Maria Smolka-Day, Michael Estle, Bill McCloy, Marta Kiszely, Dan Wade, Margareta Horiba and Tracy Thompson.
The group developed four goals for the coming year:
In addition to these goals, the group discussed the possibility of using working group time slots for specialized programming in future years. Such programs could include invited speakers, and would be open to the Association at large, but would focus on an area of specific interest to the working group. We also shared information regarding relevant Web sites, vendors and other potential sources for acquiring East European materials.
Anyone with an interest in East European sources is encouraged to attend next year's working group. If you have comments or questions about the group or its goals, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
