ALISS Finance

Jennie Grimshaw presented the draft accounts for 2008/9 This showed that ALISS continued to
maintain a firm financial basis. Marcus Wooley University of Luton Treasurer of the CILIP
Information Group was elected as Treasurer 2008/9.


Review of Activities.

Heather Dawson provided a brief summary of ALISS Events during 2008/9.

Membership.
Despite the financial recession membership had remained relatively stable. Individual
membership had increased. It had been decided to hold a reserve of funds in the current account
to cushion against any future cancellations caused by the recession.

Journal
ALISS continues to publish the journal ALISS Quarterly

Special issues were on new ways of supporting researchers, web 2.0, Digital repositories

The winner of the annual prize for the most inspiring and informative article is Kate Robinson
for her article on around the World in 80+ Books, an innovative project involving international
students in Library collection development at the University of Bath. http://opus.bath.ac.uk/448/
1/aliss%252080%2520plus.pdf The runner up is Miggie Pickton for her article on developing the
institutional repository at the University of Northampton. http://nectar.northampton.ac.uk/1283/


Website
Papers from past events continued to be loaded on the website. However, technical issues meant
that the loading of large slides had been difficult. As a result some had been loaded on a separate
slideshare account. During 2009 we will be investigating revamping the website to incorporate a
better structure, easier editing for aliss members and web 2.0 features.

Conferences
July 2008 Northern Ireland conference on supporting researchers in the social sciences
August 2008 summer conference Web 2.0 policy and Practice
