In February, Eloise retired from the Northwestern University School of Law’s Pritzker Legal Research Center after 25 years of service and active involvement in CALL, AALL, LLMC and LIPA.
Eloise has been a mentor to many librarians throughout her career; and many of her mentees attended the CALL luncheon when she was honored. She has always recognized the importance of maintaining strong connections between law libraries and the greater legal profession.
Eloise encouraged her colleagues to contribute to our changing profession through collaboration and active involvement in professional organizations. She has shared her wealth of knowledge in librarianship through her involvement in AALL, ALA and ILA sections, serving on committees and executive boards in each of these professional organizations.
She has served as editor of Illinois Libraries, as a contributor to the Cataloging & Classification Quarterly, and has been a frequent guest lecturer on technical services, cataloging, and library management and LEEP program adjunct faculty member at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois.
For the last two decades, Eloise has had a strong national presence and has provided an elite level of professionalism evidenced by her management positions, scholarly writing and academic teaching record.
