Standing Committee and Section Membership

The Standing Committee has eight members from seven countries, three corresponding members, and two observers. Section registration in 1994 stood at 66 members.


Social Science Documentation Bibliography

The compilation of a bibliography of documentation literature specifically related to the social sciences, based largely, but not entirely, on materials that appeared in the SSID Liaison Bulletin< /i> (now discontinued) has begun. It will be published both in print form and via Internet before the end of 1994.


Two other projects on micromaterials and grey literature were discontinued as the contractees are no longer active in the Section.



The Section's own Newsletter, which is the continuation of the SSID Liaison Bulletin, was published once during the year.
