Letter from IASA’s Editor

I would like to announce some changes to the publication of Bulletins. Members will have noticed there has not been a printed Bulletin for some time nor have there been any eBulletins. For this I apologise but I trust you've been able to keep up with relevant news and information via the website notice board and the IASALIST. The gap has come about while we consulted the IASA membership on the need for Bulletins and while we developed the new website to accommodate easier production.

50 Jahre Österreichische Mediathek
