IN THIS ISSUE: The proverbial "they" say that writing is a lost art, lost not only in the sense of disappearing, but also in the sense of lacking worth or relevancy. Maybe instead of being "lost," the written word is a victim of society. In a technology driven age, pictures seem to be worth more than thousands of words. But for all those pictures, there also seem to be lots of words describing how the technology -- hardware, software, vcrs -- works and the best ways to use it. Whatever the case, this issue of TSLL presents three articles devoted to the written word. Brian Striman (and Hugh Moore) reports on an AALL writers' panel and Brian also submitted an article on the new JRGC. Ellen McGrath's Research and Publications column contains a plethora of writing opportunities. Hopefully, all this exposure to the written word will inspire you to imaginatively and creatively put the pictures into words.
As a special supplement to this issue, we've included a section of the TS-SIS Survey Summary. The Summary will be completed in the upcoming issues.
