The Planetarian Network
In an effort to find better ways for its members to communicate with one another and share the wealth of knowledge that exists within
our field, IPS has started a new community platform. The Planetarian Network has more capabilities than a simple email listserv and is better organized than typical social media or blog-style services, and can have sub-communities in different
languages. Please participate, voice your concerns, share your successes, your wisdom, and to ask for help from the international community. To join, visit https://ipshub.mn.co to join
