I noticed that you state one of the areas encompassed is "the design and operation of Digital Libraries." There is a SIG DL and this seems beyond the scope of the discussion that is typically held on this list.

Subject: [SIGMETRICS] SIG/MET planning meeting at ASIS&T Annual Meeting

As many of you may know, a proposal has been submitted to the ASIS&T
SIG Cabinet to extend the virtual SIG Metrics (SIGMETRICS) into an
active SIG.  The proposal will be reviewed at the SIG Cabinet meeting
this Sunday at the ASIS&T Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh, PA.  The
proposed officers of the revised Metrics SIG would like to invite
anyone interested to attend a planning meeting at noon on Monday in
the Springfield room.

Below is the description of the revised SIG.

Metrics SIG (SIG/MET)

SIG/MET: Special interest group for the measurement of information
production and use.

SIG/MET encourages the development and networking of all those
interested in the measurement of information.  It encompasses not only
bibliometrics, scientometrics and informetrics, but also measurement
of the Web and the Internet, applications running on these platforms,
and metrics related to network analysis, visualization, scholarly
communication and the design and operation of Digital Libraries.
SIG/MET will facilitate activities to encourage the promotion,
research and application of metrics topics.  Academicians,
practitioners, commercial providers, government representatives, and
any other interested persons are welcome.

We look forward to seeing you at the Annual Meeting!
