[Ed. note: Highlights from the January committee report to the Executive Board.]

CONTINUING EDUCATION
Betty Landesman, Co-Chair

The CEC approved three proposals for funding in 2008:

•    Co-sponsorship of program at the North Carolina Serials Conference, April 2008
•    Co-sponsorship of e-resource workshop at Mississippi State University, summer 2008
•    Support of development of online course on “Best Practices for Electronic Resources Management”, summer 2008

We received an inquiry from Joyce Tenney about co-sponsoring a serials program for the Maryland Library Association in May.  I responded that it was a great idea, and we are awaiting a proposal to put before the CEC for approval

Valerie Bross, CEC Co-Chair, contacted Peter Shepherd of Project Counter to discuss the possibility of presenting the “UKSG Usage Statistics Training Seminar” as a NASIG preconference or other NASIG-sponsored forum.  The UKSG will discuss the proposal at their next formal committee meeting.

At the request of PPC, CEC members brainstormed ideas for possible 2008 preconferences and submitted them to Sarah George Wessel.  Possible topics include standards, Web 2.0 for serialists, archival access to electronic resources, distance teaching and learning, and open source tools for serialists.
