The Association of Colleges and Research Libraries of the Greater New York Metropolitan Area Chapter just announced a new blog that will maintain their events and job listings. This is actually replacing their listserv. Here is the full announcement:
ACRL/NY Events and Jobs Blog Replaces ACRLNY-L Listserv
ACRLNY-L will be discontinued February 2, 2007 in listserv format and will be moving to a new blog format. The blog, ACRL/NY Events and Jobs, is located at http://acrlny.blogspot.com. The blog is hosted by the Greater New York Metropolitan Area Chapter, Association of College and Research Libraries or ACRL/NY. Brian Lym (Hunter College), Ann Grafstein (Hofstra University) and Monica Berger (NYC College of Technology) maintain this blog. Like ACRLNY-L, it is for announcements, not discussion. We will post only events and jobs that are related to academic and research libraries.
Subscribing: You have a choice of RSS subscription (look for the orange RSS button) or subscription by email. To subscribe by email, scroll down the right-hand column, below the index and RSS feed button. There is a form where you can enter your email address. You will receive postings once a day if you subscribe by email.
Submitting events and jobs: Submit events and jobs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Great new features of the blog: ACRL/NY Events and Jobs offers:
- Browsing by category or geographical location *Search bar located in the navigation bar at the top of the page *Permanent and concise archives (All postings to ACRLNY-L after Oct. 25, 2006 are archived on the blog)
- Links to websites listing other events.
- Lisjobs.com library job postings feed directly into the bottom-most part of the blog
