On the Move


The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) recently expanded its staff and offerings through a merger with the Specialized Information Publishers Association (SIPA), effective with the new year. SIPA's volunteer leadership will remain the same, as the board of directors officers Bob Brady (president of the SIPA board), Denise Elliott (vice president and pending president), Meg Hargreaves (secretary), and Lucretia Lyons (treasurer) continue in their respective roles. Staffers Janine Hergesell and Ronn Levine recently moved to the SIIA Washington, D.C., headquarters. And to kick off the new year, SB?A is introducing a new initiative: the Specialized Information Professional Certificate, a 21-unit program designed to help publishing professionals improve skill sets through a better understanding of the variety of today's publishing business models. Check out www.siia .net for more details.

Canadian academic librarians now have a special voice with the introduction of the Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians (CAPAL). The concept of this new organization emerged after the mid-November symposium titled Academic Librarianship: A Crisis or Opportunity at the University of Toronto. The game plan for the first year will be to create an infrastructure and set the wheels in motion for future initiatives. CAPAL planned to hold its inaugural membership meeting in Toronto at the end of January. For more information, visit http^/can acadlib.wordpress.com.
