1. News
1.1 USGS Publications Advisory Committee needs input
     An Ad Hoc Committee has been formed within the Geologic Division of
the USGS to make recommendations on a wide variety of issues concerned
with publications, the integration of the scientific programs into the
publication process, and the USGS libraries.  Recommendations will be
made to the Chief Geologist and the Division Policy Council. The final
report will be sent to the Chief Geologist in November.
     The chair of the committee, James Smith, is seeking general overall
publication reviews from outsiders.  This is your opportunity: as
librarians, as users of the geologic literature, as keen observers of its
use by patrons, and as people with a vested interest in the smooth,
efficient dissemination of the published literature to have input into a
critical report.
     You have all had the opportunity to work with the new digital formats
and probably have some insight into their efficiency, usefulness, and what
is missing or currently unavailable when information is presented in this
format. You have worked with the USGS publication series and maps and
know the usefulness and value of these series.  How do they relate to the
needs of your patrons?  Do you see overlap?  How are open-file reports
used? What improvements would you like to see?  Think of these issues and
others, then put pen to paper.
     Some of the issues being considered by the committee which you may
wish to address include:
      - Establishing publication priorities
      - What type of publications should be published in the future.
      - Standards for publications and whether these should be determined
by regional technical report publication groups/units or a central
publications group
      - On-line publishing, publications on alternate media (eg. WWW) etc.
What types of information in this form, are they efficient and can they be
maintained? How is payment made?
      - What are the considerations for spatial databases and the
implications for their use, distribution, etc.?
      - What policies should be developed to govern general interest
publications?
     *** What administration and technical support does the library need
and who should provide it? (The library by tradition has been in the
Geologic Division to support the research efforts of scientists); library
funding, organization, its future role.

1.2 Changes at the Arizona Department of Transportation
     Early this year, the Arizona Department of Transportation
discontinued the cartographic unit in its Photogrammetry and Mapping
Section.  The Department did this as part of a major reorganization, where
functions that do not directly support freeway construction are being
eliminated.
     The cartographic unit prepared various products, including the
state's travel map and county highway atlases.  Responsibility for
producing the travel map has been turned over to Arizona Highways
Magazine, which will be responsible for its production.  At present, all
work has stopped on the county atlases.

2.2 Maps: Other new maps

     A new FREE map, "Canada's National Parks and Historic Sites" is
available from Canadian Heritage, Parks Canada. It features a series of
photos from National Parks and National Historic Sites on one side and a
very attractive map of Canada on the other. The map shows the locations
of the parks and sites and lists them by province. It also depicts some
vegetation and land covers. The size is about 2 x 3 feet. Full colour and
again quite attractive and very informative. To order, contact

2.3 Books, atlases, and journals

     In February 1996, a new publication will be launched entitled
"Mercator's World".  It is not necessarily an academic journal, although
academics and professionals from all disciplines will hopefully find it
interesting. It is a publication for the general population focusing on
the world of maps, atlases, globes, and charts. Mercator's World will have
a worldwide distribution of 20,000 and will be published six times per
year.
     Mercator's World is edited for readers who have an interest in and
love for maps.  It will cover the history of maps and map-making,
atlases, globes, and charts, as well as current technologies in
cartography.  Articles and features will include eve rything from antique
maps and collecting to the use of maps in past and current explorations.
Mercator's World will focus on maps and atlases from a variety of
perspectives, including scientific, military, political, historical,
cultural, and sociological.
     They are currently seeking editorial submissions from the collector,
historian, geographical, and cartography communities.  Generally, articles
should be from between 1000-2000 words in length and include as many
quality graphics as possible (which will be handled with extreme care and
returned promptly).  All editorial submissions will be reviewed by the
publication's editorial advisory board. If you are interested in serving
on the board, please let me know.  Suggestions and recommendations regarding
content are certainly welcomed.
