3. 1998 AAS DIRECTORY MAILED 17 NOVEMBER
The 1998 Membership Directory will be mailed 3rd Class Postage on or about 17 November. Based on last year's experience, we anticipate a delivery time of as much as 30 days to some areas.
We hear that some institutions - for example, some NASA facilities, and the University of Colorado - are no longer accepting 3rd Class mail, in which case, you must make your own arrangements with them to receive the Directory. The AAS cannot provide a second free copy of the Directory if it is discarded by your mail administration. Alert them to it's arrival in December. This year's Directory is a blue-green color in a transparent shrink-wrap.
If, for another reason, your Directory has not been received by 31 January 1998, please email Sharon Savoy (email@example.com).
4. MAJOR RESEARCH INSTRUMENTATION (MRI) PROGRAM
Nathaniel G. Pitts, Director,
Office of Science and Technology Infrastructure
Deadline: 30 January 1998
The solicitation for the Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program was posted on the NSF Home page 30 October. Since this publication will not be made available in hard copy, please communicate the following web address to your constituents.
The MRI solicitation can be found at: www.nsf.gov/od/osti
This is an excellent opportunity for NSF to partner with academic institutions for the acquisition of state-of-the-art, high-cost, research instrumentation and for the development of the next-generation research instrumentation. This instrumentation must be accessible for both research and research training purposes thus fostering NSF's core strategy of integrating research and education.
