On behalf of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), it is my great pleasure to inform you about ASM Resource Centers.
Launched in 2005, the ASM Resource Centers provide a physical location where microbiologists can access resources and information to assist them in their academic or professional endeavors. Typical resources housed in the Centers are: ASM Publications such as ASM Books and hard copies of ASM Journals; brochures on ASM programs such as fellowships, professorships, awards and mentoring opportunities; registration forms to become ASM members and a description of ASM member benefits; and usually a computer with internet access where visitors can access ASM’s online resources. The Centers are placed in strategic locations that are convenient to students, faculty, technicians, and other professionals who would benefit from utilizing its resources. The Centers are open to the public.
ASM Resource Centers are managed by an ASM Ambassador or Country Liaison, an international member of the Society serving as a formal in-country representative of the Society. Dr. Chanwit Tribuddharat is currently serving as the official ASM Country Liaison to Thailand and would assist us in this initiative. We look forward to working with him to develop Thailand’s first ASM Resource Center.”
