Share your favorite "reading material" with your TMS colleagues! JOM is compiling nominations for an upcoming JOM reader
poll on the greatest works of fiction that prominently feature some aspect of minerals, metals or materials science and
engineering. Read the New and Noteworthy section of the September JOM for details on the project and how to submit your
nomination. In the meantime, enjoy a different type of countdown by reading Megan Brewster’s reflection on her Congressional
Fellow experience in The Top Ten Lessons Learned from a Year on Capitol Hill. Also, learn why one TMS member has amassed 20
guitars and counting in Guitar Collecting Strikes a Chord for Alex King. Finally, find out about the countless contributions
made by the TMS Accreditation Committee—and how you can be part of it—in Ron Gibala’s article, The Face of the ABET Accreditation Process.
Take a closer look at the August JOM cover. What looks like an electric arc furnace shop is actually a highly detailed miniature that Gordon Geiger, 1992 TMS President,
has created for his model train layout. Read how Geiger has painstakingly replicated nearly every aspect of the steel industry supply chain in HO
scale in the August Meet a Member. For another perspective on doing great things on tiny scales,
read this month’s feature that introduces the
goals and the team leading the new TMS study on integrating materials simulations across length scales.
Plus, don’t miss the preview of
Materials Science & Technology 2014, as well as details on TMS’s new Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy.
