Aslib, The Association for Information Management, has been resurrected by its former Chief Executive, Roger Bowes. Bowes has purchased the assets and intellectual property of ASLIB which are owned under a new company, Global Information Management Services.

The organisation will continue to be called ASLIB and Bowes holds the post of Managing Director. Bowes commented, "My intention was always to ensure that ASLIB and its unique contribution to information management is sustained and flourishes and that its staff including myself can continue in employment."

Cathy Mostyn, Business Development Director at Emerald, stated, "Aslib has the full support of Emerald Group Publishing Limited and as owners and publishers of the Aslib journals, we expect our relationship with them to be a long and happy one. Aslib bulk purchases these journals to service their members. This means that once membership fees are paid, the supply of Aslib/Emerald journals is guaranteed."

Members will continue to benefit from subscriptions to two of the six Emerald/Aslib journals of their choice and also benefit from a 20% discount on any additional Emerald/Aslib journal(s). Members also benefit from an extensive range of electronic services which support Emerald titles. Emerald has a portfolio of 27 library and information science titles, more than any other publisher in the world.

Emerald Aslib journals are:

• Program
• Aslib Proceedings
• Journal of Documentation
• Performance Management and Metrics
• Records Management Journals
• Library Hi Tech News
