Membership. During 2006-7 we were able to retain membership fees at the same cost. This encouraged more individual members to join. We also expanded the corporate base. Efforts were made to contact government libraries via an article in the Network of Government Libraries (formerly Circle of State Librarians) group as yet outcomes have been limited. As a result it has been decided to nominate a committee member to deal specifically with marketing/publicity to advertise the group to a wider audience. New website A new ALISS website http://www.alissnet.org.uk ALISS Website has been developed and hosted in association with Headfast using Headfast AMIGOS software & website design. All content is now supplied by the ALISS committee. The new site can provide free access to all PowerPoint slides and papers from past events (see the Past events section) we are also developing current awareness features.
