Welcome to this rather short, but very important Fall 2019 issue of the CALL Bulletin.  Inside you will find the regular business information of CALL, including a recap of the September 2019 Business Meeting as well as the complete slate of candidates for the 2020 CALL Board.

Anne Hudson, recipient of a CALL grant, reviews the 2019 AALL meeting, and with it fond memories of summer.  Additionally, Matt Timko provides musings on “maintaining” a work-life balance.

Fall is the perfect time to get cozy and comfortable with the CALL Bulletin, so enjoy!

CALL Bulletin Committee 2017-2018 Annual Report

The 2017-18 Bulletin Committee started as co-editors Emily Barney, Juanita Harrell, and Philip Johnson and Committee members Tami Carson, Anne Danberg, Debbie Ginsberg, Jill Meyer, Clanitra Stewart Nejdl, and Matthew Timko. Our board liaison was Lindsey Carpino. Juanita transitioned to work in a non-law library in March, at which point Matthew Timko became a co-editor.

The Committee has published three issues this year, with the fourth issue set for publication within a week or so of the writing of this report. Our Summer issue contained most of the CALL Committee annual reports and a number of reports from various meetings and conferences. The Fall issue highlighted pieces on leadership and a fund read on chapter archives “on the road.” The Winter issue featured a piece by Debbie Ginsberg and recapped Lindsey Carpino, Annie Mentkowski, and Clanitra Stewart Nejdl’s presentation at the MAALL, LLAW, MICHALL, MALL and CALL Joint Annual Meeting.

After the publication of the spring issue, Philip will step aside as co-editor and will be replaced by Clanitra Stewart Nejdl.

From the Editors

Spring time in Chicago. Hooray!  We’ve had snow and rain, and it’s been very cold, but I have seen shoots of leaves and flowers blooming, so we’re leaving behind the old and bringing in the new.  Like the weather, the CALL Bulletin is changing. This is my last column as co-editor and the end of my three-year term as co-chair of the Bulletin Committee.

I have enjoyed shepherding our AALL award-winning newsletter to its hybrid WordPress blog and PDF formats. Since the format change with the Fall 2014 CALL Bulletin issue, we’ve had over 15,000 views, with a peak of 2,149 views in January 2016. The art in CALL libraries and Chicago International theme issues were very popular as well as our AALL in Philly supplemental  summer issue. And a project that I started with co-editor Lindsey Carpino and Bulletin Historian, Annie Mentkowski, is coming to fruition. We are going to get the CALL Bulletin content archived in and accessible via HeinOnline. Stay tuned! Continue reading From the Editors

As a co-editor of the CALL Bulletin, I often get e-mails from the Council of Newsletter Editors (CONE) regarding AALL chapter newsletters that have recently become published. After reading the newsletters of other chapters, I began wondering if there was a list of all the chapter publications. I could not find one, so I decided to create one. I wanted to easily share with everyone the great content that our fellow chapters and AALL Special Interest Sections (SISes) are putting out for us to enjoy and learn from. It is really inspiring to share in such a wonderful and thought-provoking community! When you have some time, check out the newsletters and blogs of our peers. Enjoy!
