“…The purpose of this organization shall be to unite all persons interested in the intersection between classical studies, libraries, and scholarly communication, in order to promote timely exchange of information and ideas and collaboration in activities of mutual concern. These include but are not limited to: user instruction, collection building, preservation, and electronic publishing. In particular, the Forum shall aim to support relevant initiatives of the American Philological Association (APA) by working closely with its officers and committees. To this end, the Forum shall maintain status as an affiliated group of the APA…”.

Its second annual meeting will take place at the APA conference in Montreal, Canada, on 7 January 2006 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. in room 513A of the Palais des Congrès.

I wasn’t at the initial meeting last year, in fact I only found out about the organization this morning. I will be at the meeting in Montreal.
