Directory of Physics, Astronomy & Geophysics Staff To Be Mailed in March

dpageIn late-March to early-April, APS members will receive the 1997 Directory of Physics, Astronomy and Geophysics Staff (DPAGS), a listing of physicists, astronomers and geophysicists in North America published by the American Institute of Physics (AIP) and the APS. This edition contains information on more than 31,000 scientific staff members at more than 2,000 institutions and organizations. Please note that it is NOT a replacement for the APS Membership Directory, but rather an organizational and geographic based listing. Hence, some APS members are not listed, while others that are listed may not be APS members. APS members are advised to retain their current copies of the APS Membership Directory.

The DPAGS directory is the 29th in a series that began in 1959. Originally it was a directory of academic physics departments, but has steadily expanded in scope and size. It now covers a wider range of organizations, including governmental agencies and laboratories, large corporations and small firms, as well as academic institutions. The 1997 edition also contains expanded information on societies that serve the physics and related communities, including contact information for AIP, its member societies, over 30 related U.S. societies, and more than 150 physics societies around the world.

APS encourages the redistribution of the materials included in this newspaper provided that attribution to the source is noted and the materials are not truncated or changed.
