WASHINGTON — Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell has appointed a new Chair and Vice Chair and 14 new and continuing members to the National Geospatial Advisory Committee (NGAC), which provides recommendations to the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC), the interagency executive group responsible for providing leadership and direction in federal geospatial programs.  

I am pleased to announce that LisaMarie Hall will now be the SUL service coordinator for the public print/copy/scan service provided by VPTL. In this role LisaMarie will focus on the operational and communication aspects across SUL for this VPTL service. There are a few key areas where LisaMarie will be able to better streamline and improve coordination across SUL and between SUL and VPTL.

Communities using the LOCKSS Software have collaboratively passed an important milestone and are now preserving over 1000 “long tail” journal publishers, smaller publishers who have ten or fewer journals. Content from these publishers are most at-risk for loss, making preservation vital to guarantee future access to the material for research and teaching.
