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

institutional repository at the University of Northampton. http://nectar.northampton.ac.uk/1283/
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.
