New Design for DataBits

Network News Spring 1999, Vol. 12 No. 1

DataBits, the LTER Data Manager newsletter, has been revived.

The newsletter was developed in 1990 as a mechanism for the LTER sites to share information. Publication continued through 1994 under the editorship of John Porter (VCR).

A visit by Karen Baker (PAL) to the Network Office catalyzed the plan to recreate DataBits. A prototype was developed, built upon the concepts of modular design, online publication, co-editorship as well as both inreach and outreach opportunities.

The redesign for Spring99 DataBits was developed in conjunction with Marshall White (NET), a part-time graphic designer, who works with Patty Sprott (NET) to produce the online version of the LTER Network News.
