The Library Committee is the source for all published EMA materials, including the Journal of the Elephant Managers Association (JEMA), Gray Matters, and conference proceedings. We strive to provide an organized database that is accessible to all members. In doing so, we hope to provide a historical perspective of EMA.
Recently, we have completed collecting and scanning all previous issues of JEMA, and we have begun to plan for the new electronic database.
The immediate goal of the Library Committee is to set up a functional database that can be accessed electronically by members on the EMA website. This will involve cataloging all previously published materials (e.g. scanning, assigning keywords, etc.). Ideally, this process will be streamlined with future publications, making it easy for members to search for all materials pertaining to various topics of interest (e.g. husbandry, training, research, conservation, etc.).
The Library Committee is currently seeking organized, tech-savvy volunteers that have attained Professional Member status. To join the Library committee you must be an EMA member. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
