The Footnotes Committee handles the subsection of the NMRT website where Footnotes is loaded. At least one committee member must be able to use the Content Management System, which means taking training provided by ALA at one of the conferences, therefore the current editor plans to encourage other members of the committee to take this training at Midwinter.


b. On-site conference volunteers: (include estimated numbers needed and brief job description)



c. Publicity planned for the committee (posting to other discussion lists, official press release for webpage, etc.): 

The editor will send information to ALA for the online issues to send out an e-mail alert to members about the issue availability. The editor will also post a notice to the NMRT-L mailing list when each issue is available.
