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.
