Keith Ann Stiverson Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

Keith Ann Stiverson receives 2019 CALL Lifetime Achievement Award

The Chicago Association of Law Libraries honors Keith Ann Stiversion with the 2019 Outstanding Lifetime Achievement in Law Librarianship Award.

When Keith Ann retired in 2018, it marked the end of a decades-long career that spanned roles, geography, and countless revolutions in the way information is distributed.  

Through it all, Keith has remained, as the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin once described her, in a turn of phrase that made all of us cringe, “One librarian who doesn’t keep quiet.”  We are all fortunate that she didn’t keep quiet, and we should now raise our own voices to thank her for that service.

Chapman & Cutler wins In-House Publication Award

The winner of this year’s award for outstanding in-house publication is the Chapman & Cutler Research Services team.  

They used a graphic of a book flipping open into a computer that was created by the firm’s marketing department and adapted it to make promotional logos for their events and newsletters.  They made attractive, professional-looking signs.

The Grants and Awards committee was especially impressed with their big Bingo card. Attorneys could complete some of the basic research and library tasks on the card to try to earn Bingo. Continue reading Chapman & Cutler wins In-House Publication Award

CALL Grants and Awards Committee 2018-2019 Annual Report

Committee members:  Clare Willis (chair), Sarah Andeen, Shari Duff, Debbie Ginsberg, Philip Johnson, Lyonette Louis-Jacques, Patricia Scott, and Beth Schubert.

The Committee had a very successful year.  We met once in person at the beginning of the year to discuss how we would monitor opportunities for continuing education opportunities and how we would publicize them to members.  This grew out of last year’s effort to let CALL members know about more continuing education opportunities beyond AALL.

President’s Letter

Dear CALL Colleagues:

This is my fifth and final President’s message to you (including the one bonus message from last year), because during the May CALL business meeting at Petterino’s, I passed the gavel to Jessie LeMar.

I want to take one final opportunity to thank the Board members, committee chairs, and committee members for volunteering their time to make this an eventful and productive CALL year. Here are some of the highlights from 2018-19: Continue reading President’s Letter
