Letter from the Editors

Welcome to the Year-in-Review issue of the Bulletin.  Inside you will find all of the reports from every committee in CALL, so be sure to check in on what each committee achieved this last year.  Speaking of achievement, please take a minute to read up on all of our wonderful CALL award winners, and be sure to send your congratulations if you have not. But this issue is not all looking back.  New President Lindsey Carpino provides her first message to the CALL members, and we, the CALL Bulletin committee, introduce ourselves for the upcoming year.  Please be sure to send any article ideas to anyone on the committee.  Take care, and all the best!

This issue has been quite a doozy to get off the ground.  Like everyone else, it seems that COVID 19 has brought many extracurricular activities to a screeching halt while we navigate our new realities.  But thanks to the hard work of our fellow CALL Members and the CALL Bulletin staff we happily present the much delayed Spring issue of the Bulletin (Issue 255)!

In this issue we bid farewell to Jessie LeMar as she writes her last message as President of CALL.  Debbie Ginsberg gives advice for staying data safe in a time where we are all working from home. Carrie Port summarizes the Meting Committee’s Zoom happy hours, and invites you to join one in August.  We send a preliminary congratulations to the 2020 CALL Award winners (before formally congratulating them when we next have a business meeting in person). Finally, we congratulate Susane Yesnick on a wonderful career as we interview her after her recent retirement.

We hope you are all staying safe, active, and engaged with CALL.   We wish a healthful and fun remainder of your summer as we look toward the Fall, and we hope to (non-digitally) see you all as soon as possible.  Take care and enjoy!

Letter from the Editors

We have a lot of wonderful content from 2019 to share with you in this issue and are looking forward to the articles we’ll receive in 2020!

Thank you to our CALL members who wrote recaps of the valuable lessons learned and interesting sights from conferences they attended through CALL grants for this issue! Thanks also go to our leaders who have provided recaps of recent CALL events. Continue reading Letter from the Editors

Letter from Editors

In this final issue of the 2018-2019 CALL session, we take the time to consider our accomplishments as a community and what we hope to achieve in the 2019-2020 session. Each of our 14 committees submitted their reports. This year our committees introduced seasonal happy hours, sponsored or co-sponsored six educational presentations, relocated our archives, revised Article IV of our bylaws, and more!  Looking forward, Jessie LeMar, president of CALL, provides words of encouragement heading into the 2019-2020 session.

We also congratulate the recipients of our annual awards: Julie Pabarja, Margaret Schilt, Keith Ann Stiverson, and Chapman & Culter.

Finally, we hear from Heidi Kuehl about the AALL Day of Advocacy, and Sarah Sherman interviews Jacob Jost from the Illinois Supreme Court on recent updates to UELMA.

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!

The frigid cold can’t keep the Bulletin down for long.  After a crazy couple of weeks (which are still ongoing), here is the Winter Issue (250) of the CALL Bulletin.

Inside we have wonderful articles from terrific CALL members that run the gamut from CALL history, how to spot fake news, creating dynamic exhibits, and the benefits of modern mentorships.  All CALL members will benefit tremendously from every piece and we know you’ll love reading them as much as we loved editing them.

Along with these pieces, we also have committee news and information on the upcoming CALL election which you will not want to miss.

It’s that time of year to stay inside where it’s warm with something good to read, and there’s nothing better than reading the CALL Bulletin.  Enjoy!

Dear CALL members:

As we cling to the last days of Summer and prepare ourselves for the Fall, we are reminded that the remainder of 2018 will bring much activity. Soon enough the holiday season will be upon us, and with that the requisite Winter weather. In the spirit of savoring the rest of the Summer, we bring you the Summer 2018 issue of the CALL Bulletin, the final issue for the 2017-2018 CALL year.

This issue contains several conference reviews from CALL grantees. For example, Jesse Bowman shares his experiences at CALICon18. Eugene Giudice provides a report on his time at the 2018 Special Libraries Association conference. Finally, Lyonette Louis-Jacque discusses the “Law Books: History & Connoisseurship” course she took through Yale Law School. In addition to the grantee reports, this issue contains the year-end committee reports from each of the CALL committees.

We hope that you find this issue informative and that you enjoy the rest of your Summer!

Clanitra, Emily, and Matt

From the Editors

Hello, CALL. Rounding out this publication year’s issues, we have the spring Bulletin here for you.

This go-around we feature reviews of the ABA Tech Show by Matt Timko and AALL’s Competitive Intelligence Foundations program by Sally Baker. We also meet new member Sarah Sherman and get a recap of CALL’s work with the Greater Chicago Food Depository (which, to editorialize, looks like was a blast to volunteer for back in February). And of course, the general association news and business that you need is collected here as well.

Happy reading!
