Happy 2016! It’s that time again when we set goals and ponder about the changes we want to make this new year in our personal and professional life. For me, I am planning on making my Fitbit buzz at 10,000 steps every day. Is anyone interested in a CALL Fitbit Challenge? Professionally, one of my goals is not to procrastinate on getting my timesheets done (anyone else have this goal?). It’s definitely going to take a village or a possible CALL program to help me with my goals. Continue reading President’s Letter→

Chicago, for all of its local flare and idiosyncrasies, is really a city of the world, chock full of foreign influences and international customs. Since nothing exists in a vacuum, Chicago’s international personality impacts the makeup and quality of materials and resources within the city’s law libraries.
In this special section, Chicago International, guest editors Sharon Nelson and Matthew Timko have received and compiled many great articles demonstrating the rich international institutions and resources that the city has to offer law librarians and interested residents alike.
This Chicago International Museums Google map features various cultural and ethnic heritage museums around Chicago. It displays where the museums are located and contact information for visiting them. Enjoy!
